Welcome CMI-Property Tax Applicants and Candidates

Pursuing the CMI Professional Designation - a Mark of Distinction in Property Taxation

Coming Soon!
Changes to the guidelines and requirements for CMI/CCIP applications – effective January 1st, 2022.  Please check back in January for updated information, including the application, brochure, eligibility checklist, and orientation. 

CMI-Property Tax Exam Dates and Deadlines

Applications are now being accepted for our 2021 CMI-Property Tax Exams. Potential Candidates are encouraged to plan ahead to avoid missing the (firm) application deadline and thus the opportunity to sit for the exam.   Please review the Exam Dates & Deadlines  page for upcoming exam dates, locations, and deadlines.  To apply, you may either email, or mail your completed application to the IPT office. 

NOTE:  Change to CMI Candidate Application and Additional Exam Fees:  The CMI/CCIP application fee has been raised to $200. In addition, there will be a $100 fee per exam.  The exam fee will apply to candidates taking both the written and oral exams, or only the written exam or oral exam.  All fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable to another exam administration or another candidate.  However, if a candidate cancels the registration for an exam prior to the cut-off date (30 days prior to the exam), the exam fee will be refunded.  If you cancel within the 30 days of your exam date you will be required to pay the $150 cancellation fee. 

Please note: CMI property tax applicants must now attend both the Personal Property Tax School and Real Property Tax School as part of the requirements to sit for the CMI Exams.  A successful challenge exam result will not be accepted in lieu of attending the two schools.

If an applicant does not complete the requirements during their current candidacy period, he or she may reapply under the policies in effect at the time of the new application. Both the written and oral examinations must be passed during the same candidacy period.
