The Indiana Tax Practitioners Association (ITPA) began as an unincorporated association in 1948. It was created to serve Indiana’s tax practitioners by offering them opportunities to earn continuing professional education credits. The annual three-day seminar is unique in that it allows practitioners to earn 24 hours of credit in a single seminar. We incorporated in 1985.
ITPA is proud of its record of providing quality education. Instructors bring a variety of backgrounds in preparation for teaching the topics. Some are currently in practice as CPAs, enrolled agents, or attorneys; others provide awareness of specialty areas that impact the practitioner. We have established relationships with the IRS and Indiana Department of Revenue and rely on their expertise to round out our program.

Our board consists of 13 tax professionals, who work together to plan and present the annual seminar. Board members come from all parts of the State.
