IRS/SPEC 2017 Monthly Webcasts

NCIL understands that a lot of CILs provide or are interested in providing free tax preparation assistance.

IRS/SPEC has monthly partner Webcasts that mostly pertain to free tax preparation services/financial education and asset building opportunities and many of these Webcasts are intended for the thousands of local partners that provide the free tax preparation services. There are many times when IRS/SPEC does talk about issues related to national partners and they wanted to provide all of you the opportunity to listen in or participate on these Webcasts since there is a Q&A at the end of every Webcast.

The agenda and registration information is shared a few weeks in advance of the Webcast. There is no limit to the amount of people that can attend the Webcasts so you can invite others from your organization if there are topics you are interested in hearing about.

The schedule for 2017 Webcasts is below. 

Please email Richard Keeling, Senior Tax Analyst at the Disability & Veteran Programs/National Partnerships, SPEC Headquarters, at with any questions.
