Live EA Exam Review Course & ATP Review Course/Exam in Reno

EA Exam Review Course & ATP Review Course/Exam August 20th - 22nd

NSA’s Enrolled Agent Exam Review Course will be held at the Nugget Casino Resort in Reno, Nevada prior to the National Society of Accountants’ Annual Convention. This review is a comprehensive and intensive—and we mean intensive—course geared toward a single purpose: to help you master tax basics and pass the EA exam.

Detailed study notes will be provided for each topic, including figures and charts that prove the old adage that “…a picture is worth a thousand words.” Hundreds of past exam questions from the open-exam era and many more potential questions on newer topics are incorporated and each is reviewed in class so the real exam itself will look like an old friend. Study tips, tricks and shortcuts are a staple of this course.

Both the Live Enrolled Agent Exam Review Course and the ATP Exam Review Course will be taught by two leading experts:

 John O. Everett, CPA, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus of Accounting at VCU in Richmond, VA. John’s teaching specialty is federal taxation. He has authored or co-authored over 90 articles in academic and professional journals including the NSA EA Exam Review Course and 1040 101 Course, and is the coauthor of several textbooks, including CCH Practical Guide to Schedule M-3 Compliance, The HBJ Federal Tax Course, Income Tax Fundamentals, and Tax Planning With the Computer.

William A Duncan CPA, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Accounting at Arizona State University. Dr. Duncan was formerly a Director with Ernst & Young where he guided tax education for the firm. He is the author or co-author of three textbooks and has published a number of articles on a variety of tax topics in publications ranging from Taxes and The CPA Journal to the Journal of the American Taxation Association. He has taught in the AICPA National Tax Education program for over 20 years.

Earn the Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP) Credential:

The Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP) designation, offered by the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT), is also a leading national credential for tax practitioners who have a thorough knowledge of the existing tax code and the preparation of individual tax returns with an expertise in comprehensive 1040 issues including supporting schedules, self-employed returns, and ethics.

Earning the ATP credential exempts practitioners from taking and passing an Annual Federal Tax Refresher course and exam each year for the the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP).
