Personal Income Tax

(attendees are encouraged to bring their tax documents with them)

This beginner tax course is a clearly written, easily understandable step-by-step course that includes
practical examples, real life illustrations, and sample computations that bring tax preparation vividly to
life. The course has been designed to give the student a clear picture of the over-all tax structure as well
as a detailed, in-depth, working knowledge of the various tax laws, regulations and procedures and how
they mesh with and affect each other. Of particular assistance in this respect are the “reason why”
explanations you will find frequently throughout the course. Even the more difficult tax provisions
become much easier to grasp, remember and apply if their underlying reason or history is understood.
In fact, the course materials, which are yours to keep, will serve you well throughout your life as a tax
payer, or career as an accountant or tax preparer.
