About This Course:
Are you a Newcomer to the tax field? Are you seeking to strengthen your understanding of current tax law changes?

Perhaps you've been in practice for decades
and just want a fun refresher to update
skills, learn some tricks and make
your tax practice more profitable!

This course is for those who wish to learn tax without taking the EA Exam.

Solving the Tax Puzzle, Part III (Representation, Practice and Procedures) is based on the Internal Revenue Code in effect for tax returns filed for the current tax season. BUT, the fundamental information you will learn is eternal. Only the limits change annually to confuse the taxpayers...(or to account for inflation).

The course will include TaxMama's special twists, teaching you more than tax law - you'll learn:

  • What it means to be a tax professional under IRS Circular 230
  • How to do Tax Research – and to understand what you find

    Sanctions and Penalties – and how to defend against sanctions
