Next IRS Nationwide Tax Forum Is Set for National Harbor

IRS YouTube Videos

WASHINGTON — The next 2014 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum will be held at National Harbor in Maryland near Washington, D.C., and the IRS invites enrolled agents, certified public accountants, certified financial planners and other tax professionals to attend. Those who sign up by the pre-registration date of Aug. 5 will save $130 off the on-site price.

The IRS Nationwide Tax Forums are three-day events that provide tax professionals with the most up-to-date information on federal and state tax issues presented by experts from the IRS and its partner organizations through a variety of training seminars and workshops. John M. Dalrymple, IRS Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement, will give the keynote speech at the National Harbor forum.

The forums previously held this summer in Chicago, San Diego and New Orleans were well attended. Including the upcoming forum at the National Harbor, there are only two remaining opportunities to attend a forum this year.

Remaining Forums

Location Forum Dates Pre-Registration Deadline for $225 Rate
National Harbor, Md. Aug. 19 – 21 Aug. 5
Orlando, Fla. Aug. 26 – 28 Aug. 12

The cost of enrollment for those who pre-register is $225 per person, a savings of $130 off the late or on-site registration price of $355. Pre-registration ends two weeks prior to the start of each forum.

More than 40 separate seminars and workshops are being offered, and enrolled agents and certified public accountants may earn up to 18 Continuing Professional Education Credits in each location. Additionally, these seminars may qualify for continuing education credit for certified financial planners, pending review and acceptance by the Certified Financial Planner Board.

A few days before the start of each forum, attendees will be able to download, print or to load onto their mobile devices slide presentations from the seminars.

Case Resolution Room

After a one year hiatus, the IRS Case Resolution Program has returned to the Tax Forums. Between 2011 and 2012, the Case Resolution staff has worked over 2,100 cases with a resolution rate of over 97 percent. Tax professionals who plan to meet with IRS representatives about actual cases are reminded to bring a valid power of attorney.

Exhibit Hall

In addition to the seminars, the forums also feature a two-day expo with representatives from tax, financial, and business communities offering their products, services and expertise designed with the tax professional in mind.

In a survey of 2013 attendees, the forums received an overall 94 percent satisfaction rate. 2014 marks the 24th year that the IRS has hosted these forums to help educate and interact with the tax professional community.
