OVERVIEW

Most review techniques developed by professionals are self-taught and fine-tuned via experience. The purpose of this course is to give both new and seasoned reviewers additional and advanced procedures via a multitude of checklists to more thoroughly review S corporation and partnership tax returns. Its emphasis is not planning; rather, it is to develop a strategy to properly review a return effectively and thoroughly. The course includes dozens of “practice tips for new reviewers” and is updated for impacts of newly enacted legislation.

This course features a live instructor and has been specifically designed for the NJCPA.
