The Thursday Tax Update is a dynamic seminar that provides accountants with the most current federal tax developments affecting tax returns for the coming season. The seminar principally focuses on new and pending legislation, IRS interpretations and recent court decisions on tax laws. A must for the tax practitioner, the course emphasizes preparing the latest year’s income tax returns and gives hints that reduce taxes through effective planning. This practical hands-on approach to tax preparation and planning includes up-to-the-minute coverage of key tax issues that affect practitioners and their clients.

The second day of the seminar will teach attendees how to navigate the Affordable Care Act, specifically focusing on the taxes or tax increases imposed by the law.

James R. Hasselback, a professor at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, will be the speaker on both days. In addition to teaching at Florida State University for nearly 30 years, Hasselback has presented papers at numerous national and regional professional meetings and regularly conducts continuing education seminars for practicing accountants. He is registered with both the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and the IRS.
