Please note: This is a live, private course, and not a webinar. Attendance at this live course is limited to VTCPA members and those registered through the VTCPA. It takes the place of the usual on-site live Tax Camp offered by the VTCPA.

Tax practitioners have been hard-pressed to keep up with changes brought about by the CARES Act and the SECURE Act, not to mention the far-reaching changes of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In this course, tax advisors will be fully updated on the most important legislative and regulatory developments of the season as well as major trends and changes in the case law, with a view toward planning considerations.
