AICPA's Tax Staff Essentials, Level 1 – New Staff

This comprehensive, integrated curriculum provides tax training for four different experience levels – New Staff (Level 1), Experienced Staff (Level 2); Tax Senior/Supervisor (Level 3); and Tax Manager/ Director (Level 4).

This course is part of Tax Staff Training, Level 1 – New Staff which will cover key areas to ensure your young tax force is well prepared to begin their careers and establish a strong set of core skills necessary for junior staff growth.

Workpapers support the creation of a tax return.

This documentation not only impacts the preparer, but is required by the IRS to complete a proper audit of the return.
