This is TaxSpeaker's flagship course that in 2016 received an award from CPA Technology Advisor that no other CPE course has EVER received. TaxSpeaker was named runner up in tax research nationwide as a result of this course. That may seem unusual to most people, but the manual is an annual tax CPE manual, not a research system, is a 1,300 page print and hyperlinked electronic 1040 guide and is now proven as the best CPE manual in the country by its peers, rather than self-anointed!
This course is written to be the most up-to-date practical 1040 class in America. The class begins with all of the last-minute and current year changes that can affect an individual tax practice. From Congressional changes to IRS rulings, from the latest practice concerns to compliance issues we review all of the pressing issues of a tax practice the first thing out of the gate, in a deep practical approach that leaves nothing out.
Every one of our speakers is required to be a current practitioner with knowledge and humor who brings their current experience to the room in a presentation approach designed to make the class rewarding, interesting and stimulating, and every single speaker has won multiple "Best Speaker of the Year" awards! We utilize cutting-edge technology to provide you with literally hundreds of hyperlinks, useful websites, supporting research and case law citations to arm you with the most powerful annual guidance available. Driven by current year changes, we make sure to discuss them all before moving to reviews of current year problem areas identified by our practitioner-speakers as the most pressing issues of the year. The What's New analysis often takes up 10-12 of the 16 hours of the class because of our depth of coverage from real practitioners.
All participants receive the national award winning TaxSpeaker Manual which has been called “The Best in the Industry” at well over 1,300 pages that are updated every year. It is written to be used as a primary desktop reference manual and organized in a common-sense manner. All of the latest changes are provided individually within each chapter as well as in their own special “What’s New” chapter at the beginning of the manual.
We still continue to provide our attendees the best value in the business with a tab-divided printed manual as well as a free PDF version containing hyperlinks to hundreds of citations. This course provides in-depth coverage of 1040 returns and the related schedules and forms with a particular emphasis on problem areas. You will also find practical advice on managing your tax practice as well as relevant tax planning strategies and tax savings measures to offer your clients. Used by over 35 state CPA, EA, PA and national societies this is the go-to course for annual 1040 continuing education for all members of a firm from owners to new staff.
