CMI - State Income Tax
In 2006, the Institute for Professionals in Taxation adopted a professional designation program, Certified Member of the Institute(CMI), for qualified state income tax members. The Institute, through its CMI designation program, is the first to recognize professional achievement in state income taxation. This designation is a mark of achievement and distinction in the state income tax field.
Earning the CMI designation is both a personal achievement and a credit to the profession. The CMI designation is more than a mere credential; it is a demonstration of expertise in state/local business income taxation.
The major requirements for the State Income Tax Professional designation include membership in the Institute, state/local income and franchise tax experience, successful completion of the IPT state income tax schools, other educational requirements, and successful completion of both comprehensive written and oral examinations. In addition, after attaining the CMI professional designation, certified members are required to continue their professional education by attendance at IPT and other approved educational programs.
