LITTLE ROCK — Registration is open for the Cooperative Extension Service’s Income Tax School, which is designed to help tax preparers get ready for the 2021 tax season.
The two-day courses, offered through the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, provide tax preparers — and anyone interested in advanced income tax preparation — with the latest updates in the tax code and a review of current tax law. Courses will be offered in-person and online on these dates:
- Nov. 3-4: On-site, Cooperative Extension Service state office, 2301 S. University Ave., Little Rock
- Nov. 9-10: Online
- Nov. 19-20: Online
The online courses will be live webinars delivered via Zoom videoconferencing. Training materials will be mailed to participants before the classes.
For the in-person training, seating will be limited to allow for social distancing.
“We will be following the Arkansas Department of Health guidelines and protocols to keep everyone safe,” Kim Magee, extension community, professional and economic development program associate, and tax school director for the Division of Agriculture, said. “Should the in-person event need to be canceled due to COVID-19, registrants will have the option of transferring to one of the webinars.”
The Income Tax School is approved by the IRS as a continuing education provider. Participants can earn 16 hours of continuing professional education credit, including two hours of ethics.
Classes run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day, with a one-hour lunch break. A certificate of attendance will be emailed within three weeks of completion of the course. The cost of a two-day course is $250 before Aug. 30 and $310 after Aug. 30.
