CPE: How It Works

Most months, we will premiere at least one new continuing education webinar. You will need to register for each webinar individually, for attendance tracking purposes. In order to receive credit for attending, and receive your Certificate of Completion, you will need to:

  1. Register for the specific webinar session ahead of time.
  2. Attend for the entire 50 minutes.
  3. Respond to all three polling questions presented during the webinar.
  4. If you complete all three items above, your Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you within one week of the webinar and your attendance will also be reported to the IRS if you provided a valid PTIN at the time of registration.
  5. If you fail to meet any of the attendance verification requirements, you will NOT be issued a Certificate of Completion. This is an IRS and NASBA rule, not ours. If you experience technical difficulties that prevent you from answering polling questions or staying logged in for the 50 minutes, we cannot issue you credit.

What topics will be covered?

Most courses will be in the Federal Tax Law or Federal Tax Law Update categories. Non-tax topics, such as marketing, A&A, or MAS, will occasionally be presented.

Due to the fact that I practice almost exclusively in the field of representing delinquent taxpayers in front of SB/SE Collections and the collection side of Appeals, you can expect a disproportionate number of the webinars to cover taxpayer representation.


CPE Recognition Info for Enrolled Agents & Unenrolled Preparers

We are an IRS approved continuing education provider, number 4Y1UP.

All webinars on federal tax law topics will carry an IRS program number and are eligible for CE for Enrolled Agents and AFSP participants. We may occasionally present webinars on other topics for which CPAs may earn CPE hours but Enrolled Agents cannot.


CPE Recognition Info for CPAs

The webinars presented here qualify as CPE for CPAs in most states and territories, because most states simply have no registration/approval process or requirement for CPE providers. We follow NASBA standards for all training.

Five accounting boards may not allow CPE credit for our webinars: Illinois, Puerto Rico, New Jersey, New York, and Texas. We will be working on obtaining the necessary registrations with these states during the 2018 filing season.

State boards of accountancy have final authority regarding the applicability of any particular course to your CPE requirements. Please check with your state board regarding requirements and acceptance.


Who the heck are you?

My name is Jassen Bowman, and I’m an Enrolled Agent that likes to flap his jaw. So you might as well knock out some continuing education requirements while I do it.

I’ve written some books, some checklists, teach other tax professionals how to do tax resolution marketing, and I’ve done other weird things
