CCIP - Certified Credits and Incentives
In 2014, the Institute for Professionals in Taxation adopted a professional designation program, Certified Credits and Incentives Professionals (CCIP), for qualified Credits & Incentives members. The Institute, through its CCIP designation program, is the first to recognize professional achievement in Tax Credits and Business Incentives (Credits & Incentives). It is expected that the designation will become widely known as a mark of achievement and distinction in the Credits & Incentives field.
The major requirements for the Certified Credits and Incentives Professional Designation include membership in the Institute, statutory tax credits, discretionary incentives, site selection, and economic development experience, successful completion of the IPT Credits & Incentives School, other educational requirements, and successful completion of both comprehensive written and oral examinations. In addition, after attaining the CCIP designation, CCIPs are required to continue their professional education by attendance at IPT educational programs.
