Tax season may be far from over in 2022, but it’s not too early to make plans to attend this year’s IRS Nationwide Tax Forums, starting in July.
The event is seen throughout the income tax industry as the marquee outreach event for tax professionals, state and federal tax agencies and tax industry leaders. Historically, the forums have taken place in a number of cities around the country each summer, although the traveling venue format was interrupted by the COVID pandemic.
This year’s format follows a similar arrangement from 2020 and 2021, using a virtual environment and lived-streamed webinars. The Nationwide Tax Forum opens July 19 and continues through August 18. Live streamed webinars are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
This year’s virtual event includes:
- A keynote address from Commissioner Charles Rettig;
- A plenary session with tax law and publications updates, and
- Multiple sessions on high-interest topics for the tax professional, with presentations by both IRS experts and partner associations.
Course details will be announced soon, along with webinar titles, descriptions and schedules.
Registration for the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums
Registration is now open for the 2022 IRS Nationwide Tax Forums. Tax pros are advised to register early for the best experience. Fully registered attendees get to take part in all the live webinars, visit the vendors in the Virtual Expo, and share their experiences in choice focus groups.
Attendance at the 2022 event also qualifies a tax professional for continuing education (CE) credits. This includes enrolled agents, certified public accountants, Annual Filing Season Program participants, California Tax Education Council (CTEC) participants and Certified Financial Planners (CFP).
Participants will have to abide by their respective licensing agency’s CE requirements.
For those who can’t attend this 2022 virtual main event, the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online (NTFO) has courses based on taped seminars from previous Tax Forums. The NTFO courses can be taken for CPE credit or for audit purposes.
It should be noted, however, that registration for NTFO is separate from registration for the IRS Nationwide Tax Forum.
