At its core, NTPI is a three-level program developed to sharpen the skills of practitioners at all stages of their careers. With each level of this program, participants expand their knowledge and skills, and gain the confidence needed to guide their clients successfully through the often challenging maze of the Internal Revenue Code, tax regulations and agency structure.
Enrolled agents who successfully complete Levels 1, 2 and 3 (in order) become NAEA’s National Tax Practice Institute™ Fellows. Those who become Fellows join ranks with others who have achieved the highest educational achievement in representation. Prospective clients using the ”Find an Enrolled Agent” directory on the NAEA website may include “Fellow” in their search criteria. The member profiles of Fellows also showcase this designation, adding a level of distinction to their expertise.
All sessions (except the plenary) qualify for CE credit and each track includes two hours of IRS ethics. NAEA is recognized and approved by the Internal Revenue Service Return Preparer Office (RPO) as an approved continuing education provider and recognized by NASBA. NTPI Levels 1, 2, and 3 are open only to enrolled agents, CPAs, and tax attorneys.
