2020 Exam Cycle Seminar Information
Preparing to Practice Before the US Tax Court
Registration Now Open!
Register now to be part of our dynamic program that helps you prepare to take the 2020 Tax Court Exam!
The program is designed to prepare tax professionals to pass the U.S. Tax Court written nonattorney admission exam administered biannually. In our live lecture series we present material in the four subject areas tested, including Practice and Procedure, Evidence, Legal Ethics and Federal Taxation, along with test-taking strategies and a synopsis of Tax Court cases. We teach you the topics, not just prior exams questions, so you can still answer appropriately even when a question changes. Our text and program materials use prior scored Tax Court exam questions that are updated each year for current law and procedures.
For 2020 we offer three program registration options for your success (see below) plus we also offer private coaching by special arrangement with Sherrill Trovato. Our student-access only content includes assignment modules, attendance at all 3 live lectures, live and on-demand webinars, recorded live lectures, timed quizzes and a Forum for use by our students, instructors and mentors.
