It's about that time – the year is winding down and you're hard at work checking off your pre-tax-season checklist. One thing that should be on the top of your list? Earning those CPE credits.
Update: These courses are now available for free on Canopy's CE and CPE platform. Click here for access to dozens of high quality webinar and self study courses.
Most states require CPAs to complete a certain number of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses to retain CPA status and to improve and maintain their professional skills. How many CPE credits you need and how often you must earn them varies by state. You can check how many you're required to earn this year on the National Register of CPE Sponsors website.
But regardless of whether you need to complete yours by the end of 2016 or you have another year to get it done, the slow season is the perfect time to check it off your to-do list. After all, getting it done now means one less thing you have to worry about during the holiday season.
And thanks to Canopy's new Technical Tax Resolution CPE Series, there's never been an easier way to earn those CPE credits. The Canopy CPE series was produced with the help and expertise of Tanya Baber, EA, a public accountant, accounting consultant, and the owner of two accounting firms. Presented in partnership with the NATP, the series offers affordable access to some of Tanya's most popular tutorials.
With course titles like "Employment Tax and Trust Fund Recovery" and "Advanced Offer in Compromise," the Canopy CPE series is the perfect place to brush up on all of your skills before tax season hits. You can learn more and register for Canopy CPE series courses through the end of 2016 at canopytax.com/cpeseries. But hurry–space is limited and popular courses will fill up quickly.

Canopy takes the headaches out of client management by offering a way to keep client info organized.
I love how easy it is to setup a new client in this software. Once set up, it's one click to get IRS transcripts downloaded for my review. This saves me at least an hour each week in comparison to the software I used to use.
This makes workflow for tax resolution manageable. This business is a bunch of hurry up and wait. This system helps to refresh my memory while transitioning to different clients.
The ability to securely share documents with clients as well as complete POAs from client contact data already in Canopy. The ability to route workflow between team members with color coded statuses allows us to work efficiently.
Cool features, outstanding customer service, constantly updating to make it better. I love that I can upload files easily to a secure client portal and we don't have to email files anymore. Absolutely can't imagine not having this software.
It's safe and secure. Clients are able to upload documents and the documents are saved their portal which as a result, keeps us better organized. The task feature keeps us organized and we know exactly the status of each client.
