Virginia Tech Income Tax School

Based on an abundance of caution and deep concern for the possible risk that travel and assembling in crowded spaces creates, we are compelled to conduct our tax schools virtually this year.  

We plan to offer our 16 hour tax course three times in 2020 during the weeks of November 16th, December 7th, and December 14.

In the next few weeks, we will send out a link to a survey where you will be able to indicate your preference for the number of continuing education hours that we will cover each  day.  In the past, we offered 8 credit hours per day, but by offering this virtually, we can consider offering 8, 5.33, or 4 credits per day, depending upon if the course is offered over 2, 3, or 4 days.  The results of the survey will be the primary factor in determining what our offerings look like this year.   We plan to have registration available by the end of July and specific content topics, dates, times, and pricing available in the middle of July.

In choosing this prudent step to move our course online, we are in line with public health guidelines regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus, as well as appropriate procedures determined by Virginia Tech’s COVID-19 Committee.

We believe this is the right decision at this time and I look forward to when we are no longer all living with this concern and may get together again.  In 2021 our plan is to offer both in-person tax school offerings as well as virtual offerings.

I apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment these changes may have caused. As new information becomes available, we will be updating our tax website ( as well as distributing email.
