The University of Michigan has been designated by the IRS as an approved Continuing Education Provider for its 2016 U-M Tax Seminars. These seminars qualify for IRS continuing education credit for Enrolled Agents (EA). Participation in these seminars is voluntary for other tax return preparers. Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents and Certified Financial Planners will qualify for 15-16 CPE/CE Credit. Attendance at this seminar earns you two Ethics credit hours.

Why choose U-M Tax Seminars?

Our seminars are relaxed and engaging because they are based on participation and conversation, not lectures. You’ll learn the things you need to know in a dynamic environment, with plenty of time for questions. Plus, every seminar has an open session with experts from the IRS, State of Michigan and U-M for multiple perspectives on topics that concern you. It’s an easy and interesting way to stay up-to-date and fulfill your CE requirements.

(Note: Partial credit is not available for IRS or CFP participants.)
