LITTLE ROCK – As the final quarter of 2021 approaches, tax preparers are starting to prepare for tax season. The Cooperative Extension Service offers an income tax school to help tax professionals prepare for the 2022 tax season.
The two-day courses offered by the University of Arkansas Agricultural Systems Department provide tax advisors – and anyone interested in advanced income tax preparation – with the latest tax law updates and an overview of the latest tax law.
The courses are offered in person and online on these dates:
Personally – 8.-9. November or 10-11. November at the State Office of the Cooperative Extension Service, 2301 S. University Ave., Little Rock
On-line – 9-10 November or 18.-19. November
The online courses are conducted as live webinars via Zoom video conferencing. The training documents will be sent to the participants before the courses. Face-to-face training is limited to 50 people to allow for social distancing. Masks are required.
“Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will be offering this year’s income tax schools the same as we were in 2020,” said Kim Magee, Expansion Community, Professional and Economic Development Associate and Head of the Tax School for the Agriculture Department. “We will follow the Arkansas Department of Health’s guidelines and protocols to keep everyone safe. If the personal event has to be canceled, the participants have the opportunity to switch to one of the webinars. ”
By attending the income tax school, participants can earn 16 hours of advanced training credit. Auditors and tax consultants must complete professional training with an approved provider every year. Extension is an IRS approved CPE provider.
Classes take place daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with a one-hour lunch break. A certificate of attendance will be sent to you by email within three weeks of completing the course. The cost of a two-day course is $ 250 before August 30th and $ 310 after August 30th. Registration is possible at https://uada.formstack.com/forms/tax.
