About

The prestigious EA Journal is a bimonthly publication that focuses on tax law updates and tax issues, practice management, advocacy and government relations, and association governance.

Each issue contains a test that qualifies for either two or four hours of CE and which consists of questions based on tax-related content in the issue’s feature articles. It can be taken conveniently at home or in the office. CE credits may be earned up to 18 months after the publication of the issue. The EA Journal is mailed to all members and associates of NAEA, and issues from November/December 2007 to the present are also available online.
