It’s back to school for Indiana tax preparers.
Beginning in October, tax practitioners, enrolled agents, and CPAs from Seymour to South Bend will gather at the Indiana Tax Practitioner Institute Classes, sponsored by Indiana University and Purdue University.
These classes provide up-to-date training on current tax laws, practices and regulations, including an Indiana Department of Revenue presentation, for tax practitioners. Additionally, these events qualify for up to 16 hours of CPE.
The department sends expert employees to present at the classes and deliver critical information about legislative changes and department updates. The department’s district offices play a key role in providing speakers at various locations.
To complement the presentation, the department creates a Tax Chapter that summarizes the information for attendees. The 2014 tax chapter will be available for the public on the department’s website starting in December.
The department hopes that by providing the most up-to-date Indiana tax information through this type of tax practitioner outreach, it will ultimately help Hoosier taxpayers.
For more information about the Indiana Tax Practitioner Institute Classes, including locations and dates, visit the IRS website.
