Atlanta Tax Forum quickly approaching; IRS Commissioner headlines speakers at three-day event that helps tax professionals learn the latest on tax law, transformation work

WASHINGTON – IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel will highlight the Atlanta session of the Nationwide Tax Forum on July 25-27, providing tax professionals with multiple opportunities to learn more about changes to tax law and IRS transformation efforts.

Werfel will be making his first appearance at the Tax Forums during the Atlanta event, delivering the keynote speech.

Tax professionals interested in attending the Atlanta event also have a narrow window to capture the lower, early bird price if they register by 5 p.m. ET this Thursday, June 15. The IRS encourages tax professionals to sign up soon.

During three-day sessions in Atlanta and four other cities, the tax forums will cover an ambitious program during a historic time for the tax community.

“The IRS encourages tax professionals, especially smaller practices, to attend this summer’s Nationwide Tax Forums,” said IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel. “This is a historic period for the IRS and taxpayers, and these sessions will provide tax professionals with the latest information that can help their practice and their clients. The Tax Forums are unique sessions where the IRS and association partners in the tax community provide a timely look at some of the most important issues facing tax professionals during a dramatic period of change. ”

The 2023 forums, which will be held in person for the first time since 2019, offer attendees more than 40 seminars for which tax pros can earn up to 18 continuing education (CE) credits. The wide-ranging agenda includes a special focus on the Inflation Reduction Act’s changes at the IRS. A special plenary session will explore changes outlined in the Strategic Operating Plan that will change how the IRS operates and interacts with taxpayers and the tax community for the next decade.

Other sessions will focus on changes to retirement plan distributions under the Secure Act and how to handle virtual currency and digital assets. Other timely topics will touch on warnings related to the Employee Retention Credit and reporting changes to Form 1099-K, Payment Card and Third Party Network Transactions.

The agenda also includes seminars that will help tax pros protect their businesses and clients from fraud, including a special cybersecurity course. Attendees can also benefit from refreshers on tax return preparer responsibilities, due diligence and ethics.

In addition, four of the most popular sessions will be offered in both Spanish and English.
