Registration will begin the week of October 16, 2017


The Ohio Virtual Tax Academy (OVTA) is a free event designed to provide tax-related information to small business owners. Attorneys and accountants are also invited to attend and can earn up to three (3) CLE credits (pending Ohio Supreme Court approval) and up to three and a half (3.5) CPE credits. More information about the next OVTA will be available soon.

The latest event is scheduled for: November 15, 2017 

Important: If you are seeking CLE and/or CPE credit, you will be expected to watch/listen for the VTA “code words” that will be scattered throughout the presentations.  There are a total of six words that you will need to remember.  Upon exiting the event, you will be prompted to supply the code words in order to receive credit.  Failure to identify the appropriate code words will result in a loss of possible credit awarded. Effective January 1, 2014, attorneys may earn up to 12 hours of self-study CLE credit towards their annual limit from online webinars. The Ohio Department of Taxation is an equal opportunity employer and provider of ADA services.

If you have any questions please email Organizational Development or call us at (614) 466-7560. Our normal business hours are Mon-Fri 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
