How can I be sure these are the right courses to take?

The IRS recognizes four categories of courses

Tax Law Update CE credits: this is a specific category of tax courses in the IRS system. The course should be labelled "Tax Update" or "Federal Tax Law Update."

Ethics CE credits: this is also a specific category in the IRS reporting system. The course is described as in the "Ethics" category.

Annual Federal Tax Refresher Course: This is a single courses that covers a specific outline of topics prescribed by the IRS. This course has very well-defined testing requirements as well as material.  This course is not accepted for credit for Enrolled Agents, as they are required to take more advanced courses.

Federal Tax Law CE credits: This is a general category for the IRS classification, that includes any Federal Tax law CE course, other than a Tax Update or the Annual Federal Tax Refresher Course.  You can select any of the courses from our Tax Courses sections for your Federal Tax Law CE credits, except the Annual Federal Tax Refresher Course.
