Our Blog:  Cornell Tax Conferences – News from the Director

For 2023, to meet your tax training needs in these somewhat challenging times, we are offering four in-person Two Day Tax Conferences, one virtual Tax School, and a Complimentary Ethics class.  The authors and editors start working in January to put together the best tax training materials available. We then hold off publishing in order to include the most up-to-date New Legislation chapter possible.

We will also email all those on our mailing list (see below to be added to that list).
