The Internal Revenue Service has reached an agreement with the CFP Board of Standards to provide continuing education credits at IRS Nationwide Tax Forums this summer.
   It marks the first time the IRS will register as a CFP continuing education sponsor-a role it has filled for agents and accountants.
   Twenty-four of the 36 seminars at each tax forum are eligible for the CFP credits, with topics including tax law changes, retirement plans, health care credits and ethics.
   The IRS Nationwide Tax Forums will be held in six cities this summer:
    Anaheim, Calif. - June 27-29
    Chicago - July 11-13
    Atlanta - July 25-27
    Orlando, Fla. - August 1-3
    Las Vegas - August 22-24
    New York - August 29-31
   The three-day forums offer the latest word from the IRS on tax law, compliance and ethics, as well as the opportunity to interact with IRS executives and specialists. Attendees can also consult with software vendors and tax service providers and meet with representatives of numerous professional organizations.
