The University of Illinois Tax School provides high quality, low cost tax education to tax professionals. We are an accredited sponsor of CPE and award CPE credits to those who attend our seminars. Over 6,000 participants in Illinois attend these seminars each year.
The two-day Fall Tax School is offered annually between mid-October and mid-December at various locations throughout Illinois.
Topics taught vary from year to year, and include:
- Latest federal tax updates,
- Tax issues related to individuals,
- Small business issues,
- Regulatory ethics,
- Special taxpayers,
- Recent tax law cases,
- Different tax entities,
- and other taxation topics of special interest to tax professionals.
The Federal Tax Workbook comprises two volumes, one of which is provided to attendees on each of the different Fall Tax School seminar days. This workbook is also sold to other universities and associations offering similar tax seminars throughout the United States.
In-Depth Seminars are offered each summer and fall based upon requests from Fall Tax School participants. Typically, one of the seminars relates to a specific type of entity, such as closely-held corporations, LLCs, S corporations, partnerships or trusts. Another seminar addresses topics of interest to practitioners with farm clients. Occasionally, additional topics are offered addressing an area of taxation that is troublesome or complex like The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
In addition to offering the tax seminars, we also publish and sell specialty workbooks. These books are updated periodically in order to provide tax practitioners with the most up-to-date and accurate taxation information.
