Credits and Incentives School

Being recognized as an expert and trusted adviser is a key component of achieving success in the world of tax credits and incentives. Employers and clients must trust that C&I professionals will structure projects that are beneficial to all parties involved. IPT’s Credits and Incentives School can provide you with the foundational knowledge to help you reach your professional goals in this ever-changing field.  

The Credits and Incentives School is comprehensive, providing an in-depth study of basic and advanced concepts; practical applications of strategies; and insight on industry trends within the credits and incentives arena. It is designed for individuals who have industry knowledge, but want to advance their perspective and expertise. 

Prior to attending the school, students should have a firm grasp of SALT concepts as this is not taught during the school. There are three discipline-specific courses available online, which are highly recommended for attendees who may want to enhance their understanding in any given tax area.  These courses, one in property tax, one in sales tax and one in state income tax are available to school enrollees at no charge, but must be completed prior to the start of the school.

Successful completion of the school is just one of the requirements for the Certified Credits and Incentives Professional Designation (CCIP) designation; challenging the school in lieu of actual attendance is not permitted.  This school and the final exam should not be viewed as a preparation for or a facsimile of the designation exams, but rather a development and an enhancement of your C&I professional career.
