Welcome CMI-Sales Tax Applicants and Candidates

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