Welcome to the Virginia Tech Income Tax School! Our seminar is a two day continuing education program that provides an intensive study of the tax law and regulation governing individuals and small businesses.  Once again, this year the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA) will be our education focal point.  Our seminar is designed for individuals with prior tax experience. Preparation of both federal and state taxes will be covered. Experienced CPAs, EAs, Virginia Tech faculty, and the IRS will examine new tax laws and their implications.  We offer continuing and professional education through the IRS, Virginia Board of Accountancy, CFP, MCLE, and Virginia Insurance Continuing Education Board.  Register for our Summer Business option here.  Register for our Fall options here

A limited number of discounted lodging is available at the seminars being hosted at hotels. For discounted lodging rates, please contact the hotel directly and reference the Income Tax Seminar.

For our two hours of ethics, we would like to personalize the discussion by using tax scenarios that our participants have experienced.  If you have a good tax story than can be turned into a tax ethics discussion, please enter your story by selecting this link.

I look forward to seeing you in 2019!
