Welcome CMI-Sales Tax Applicants and Candidates

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

The CMI-Sales Tax Application and Brochure outline the program from the application process to maintaining the designation.  Potential Candidates are encouraged to review the CMI Sales Tax Orientation SlideShow for a general overview of the program.  The Sales Tax Eligibility Checklist provides detailed information on how to calculate the 25 education points requirement when completing your CMI Candidacy Application.  For additional useful information, see the CMI Candidate FAQ page.

CMI-Sales Tax Exam Dates & Deadlines

Applications are now being accepted for our 2021 CMI-Sales 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, mail, or fax 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.  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 after that date you will be required to pay the $150 cancellation fee.

As of March 2014, full attendance at an IPT VAT Symposium of 18 hours or more will now count as 3 points towards the 25 education points required for eligibility for CMI Sales Tax Applicants. Please note that attendance at an IPT VAT Symposium does NOT meet the 2nd IPT Sales and Use Tax program requirement as defined in the brochure.
