Although the 2020 IRS Nationwide Tax Forums could not be held in person this year, the Forums proceeded virtually. You can still earn continuing professional education (CPE) credits for many of these courses by viewing the courses virtually. Eighteen new interactive, self-study courses are now available for view at the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online site, including downloadable PowerPoint slides and transcripts for each seminar. Registration is required to earn CPE credit.
Courses are available in a variety of tax topics and IRS procedures for free if you do not need CPE credit. Topics for this year include:
- Diligence in Practice before the IRS: Record-Keeping,
- Federal Ethics for the Tax Professionals: Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) and Circular 230,
- Keys to Mastering Due Diligence Requirements and Audits, and
- Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) Update: Qualified Business Income Deduction.

The IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online site also offers many seminars from prior-year Forums. Previous TAS seminars that may be of interest are Advocating for your Client Using the Taxpayer Bill of Rights and CDP Balancing Test: Advocating for your Client before the IRS Office of Appeals in Collection Due Process Hearings.

Taxpayer Advocate Service Help
The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) is uniquely positioned to assist all taxpayers (and their representatives), including individuals, businesses, and exempt organizations. If you qualify for our help, an advocate will be with you at every turn and do everything possible to assist through the process.
Currently, TAS is open to virtually serve taxpayers who find themselves in hardship situations or dealing with IRS tax problems they’ve been unable to resolve directly with the IRS. Visit our Contact Us page to learn more.
