The enrollment folks have outdone themselves


Recommended Posts

So I just heard from the enrollment folks at the IRS that they will not grant any CE towards my ERPA renewal, for studying for (and passing) at least one Enrolled Actuary exam during my 2019-2021 enrollment window.  

Guess I've got to download some recorded sessions this month.  Grrrrr......

How is this not legitimate continuing education?  What, it's not a "CE program" with an IRS-issued certificate?

(If there weren't going to be a delay between my ERPA expiring and being able to apply to the JBEA, I'd just abandon the ERPA credential.  EAs get higher ability to represent taxpayers than ERPAs.)

I feel your pain, but my understanding is that the organization offering the activity for potential CPE must submit the activity material to the respective governing organization(s) to be approved for allowing credit. So unless a session was submitted and approved for ERPA CPE, no matter how relevant to ERPA duties, I don't think it gets recognized for CPE. Not saying it's right or wrong, just that it is. Sorry
