The CPE hours you earn through Basics and Beyond seminars will cover a full income tax update, ethics and professional responsibility, a review of your state’s new or updated tax rules, and much more. Our Topical Update seminar is held each fall, throughout September and October. Our Year-end Update seminar is held throughout December, and it provides an informative year end line-by-line “how to” for all Form 1040 changes, state-specific tax updates, and other interesting topics. Click here to see our 2015 income tax seminar topics, and click here to see this year’s dates and locations.
