  • Enrolled agents receive one CPE credit for a minimum of 50-minute participation from the start of the forum.
  • Other tax professionals may receive credit if the phone forum meets your organizations or states CPE requirements.
  • To receive credit, register individually and use your PIN.
  • Call in using your individual phone line so your attendance can be verified.
  • Look for your Certificate of Completion by e-mail approximately one week after the forum. If you have met all requirements, you will receive your certificate automatically; there’s no need to follow up.

If you and others in your office do not require a CPE certificate, please have only one person register on the group’s behalf and use your speaker phone to dial in. This will maximize the number of lines available for other participants and help reduce costs.
