The Internal Revenue Service is inviting tax professionals to register early for one of its six Nationwide Tax Forums.

The IRS Nationwide Tax Forum series is for enrolled agents, certified public accountants, certified financial planners and other tax professionals, according to IRS Spokesman Mark Green. The first session of the series is scheduled to take place at the Marriott Atlanta, 265 Peachtree Center Avenue in downtown Atlanta.

"We are excited about this year's event in Atlanta," said Green. "We have a dynamic workshop lineup, and downtown Atlanta is a great place to enhance your business skills and earn CPE [continuing professional education] credits while also having fun."

Green said the Atlanta Tax Forum will take place June 28-30. It will include presentations from IRS experts and partner organizations who will offer up-to-date information on federal and state tax issues, as well as the opportunity to receive up to 18 continuing education credits.

Experts will cover 40 different topics that qualify as continuing professional education credit for enrolled agents and certified public accountants, he said, noting the seminars may also qualify for continuing education credit for certified financial planners.

The enrollment cost for those who register early, or two weeks prior to each forum, is $206 per person. The late or on-site registration price of $335.
