Comprehensive S Corporation Taxation Course

July 20, 2017 to July 21, 2017
Ankeny, Iowa and Live Webinar

Because of their many tax advantages, S corporations are everywhere. All tax practitioners who handle business returns must understand S corporation taxation. Yet these rules can be very complex. To meet this need, CALT is bringing our practitioners an in-depth review of S corporation taxation. The two-day course will be taught by Bob Jamison, CPA, PhD, a foremost expert and author in the field. Participants will receive a 350-page workbook and an opportunity to ask substantive questions.

We hope you’ll join us live or via webinar for this exciting new offering!
Live seminar is at: Courtyard by Marriott Ankeny, 2405 SE Creekview Drive, Ankeny, Iowa.
