Education seminars are developed in accordance with IRS standards to qualify as continuing education. However, not all seminars will qualify, for example; Idaho Update is not considered federal tax law. Our goal is to develop local affordable education opportunities in an atmosphere where we can learn from each other’s experiences.

IATC is joining with NATP ID Chapter to present three terrific speakers to bring you 12 credit hours of Federal Tax Law and Idaho Tax Law update.
