2020 Exam Cycle Seminar Information
Preparing to Practice Before the US Tax Court

Registration opens 3/1/19!
Take advantage of special early bird pricing before 5/1/19
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 the topics, not just to prior exams, so the test taker can still answer appropriately when a question changes.  We use prior Tax Court exam questions, with actual prior exam scored answers updated for current law and procedures, in our text and program materials.

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, video of recorded live lectures, timed quizzes and a Forum for use by our students, instructors and mentors.
