What is the National Tax Practice Institute®? 

The National Tax Practice Institute™ (NTPI®) is a three-level program developed to sharpen the skills of tax practitioners at all stages of their careers. With each level of this program, the core curriculum enables participants to expand their knowledge and skills, and gain the confidence needed to successfully guide their clients through the often-challenging maze of IRS codes, internal regulations, and agency structure. While the NTPI program itself is designed for enrolled agents, CPAs, and tax attorneysnon-enrolled agents are welcome to attend. Those who complete Levels 1, 2, and 3 earn the distinction of NTPI Fellow®, a designation held by the nation’s top tax practitioners.
