Join CALT for The Scoop! The Scoop is a live 30 minute session that is held twice a month, briefing you on current hot issues, recent court cases and new IRS procedures.

You are our best source of communication and this series of free webinars will convey Hot Off The Press issues. The attendance is limited to 99 persons, so register early. A confirmation e-mail will be sent upon registration.

Generally these will be held on Wednesdays, but due to some scheduling conflicts for some months the schedule has been adjusted. NO CPE credit will be available.

The first 15 minutes will be a brief discussion of the issues that have been identified that may have a broad impact on practitioners. The second 15 minutes is your time to let CALT know of any issues you are experiencing in your practice. Notices that do not seem correct, delays, a gap in some education that you have a need for, problems with IRS products, just about anything to let us know what issues you are facing in your practice. We are interested in broad issues, not specific taxpayer problems.

Limit is 30 minutes, a fast and efficient exchange of information.

In the future, this free webinar will only be available to the CALT Subscription Program members that will be unveiled soon.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
