Income Tax Compliance Fundamentals

The tax department plays a unique role within a company’s finance area. As such, tax departments face unique challenges. This program equips participants with the foundational technical and professional skills necessary to contribute to the workings of a busy corporate tax function. The program covers essential compliance functions. Illustrative examples simplify complex technical topics into practical how-to steps and introduce a methodical approach to problem-solving that promotes collaboration and incorporates process efficiencies. As the program progresses, participants will delve deeper into intermediate concepts including consolidated returns, state and local taxes, and the reporting of international transaction consequences.

What makes this training unique is the paced nature of the program (classes held every other week), live office hours with instructors on alternating weeks, and special guest lecturers who are expert practitioners that impart real-world scenarios and time-tested wisdom into the material. Online and instructor-led, access to program content is flexible and available through multiple devices, allowing working tax professionals to easily manage schedules and learn remotely. Our learning platform allows participants to connect and collaborate with peers and interact with instructors through Q&As and office hours. Step by step, the entire income tax compliance process is finally demystified.
