2015 Tax Practitioner National Income Tax Workshops

We are pleased to announce the return of the Pennsylvania Tax Institutes, Inc. (PTI) 2015 Tax Practitioner National Income Tax Workshops, including the annual Land Grant University (LGUTEF) "2015 National Income Tax Workbook".


Two Day Federal Income Tax Seminars
(LGUTEF 2015 National Income Tax Workbook)

PTI will be conducting a series of two-day education seminars in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. The two-day seminar is an intensive study of the federal tax law and regulations governing individuals, small businesses, farms and forestry.

These two-day seminars have been approved for the following continuing education:

  • CPAs: 16 hours of federal income taxation (includes 2 hours of Ethics) PA Board of Accountancy; National Association of State Boards of Accountancy
  • Enrolled Agents: 16 hours of federal income taxation (includes 2 hours of Ethics) IRS
  • CFPs: 14 hours of General Session credits
  • Attorneys: 13 hours (11 General Session, 2 Ethics) Pennsylvania State Bar
         (NOTE: Application has been submitted and we expect approval soon.)
Each attendee of these two-day seminars will receive a personal copy of the National Income Tax Workbook, in addition to a searchable CD containing prior years' editions of the workbook. This publication is used at Land Grant University income tax seminars throughout the United States. It is completely rewritten each year to incorporate the most current tax laws and appropriate guidance. Lunches, as well as morning and afternoon refreshments, are also provided at our two-day seminars.


One Day Affordable Care Act/Tangible Regs. Seminar

In addition to our two-day federal income tax seminars, PTI will also be presenting a series of one-day seminars that will focus on the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) as well as the recently passed Tangible Property Regulations. At this seminar, we will focus on the responsibilities on employers under the ACA, including the filing and reporting requirements, as well as the status of the excise tax on non-qualified heath reimbursement arrangements. In addition, we will explain the tough computations of the Premium Tax Credit (split year credits, split family credit, etc.). We will also provide an in-depth discussion of the Tangible Property Regulations. This discussion will include an overview of the regulations and how they will affect nearly all of your business clients, including safe harbor elections, change of accounting procedures and the new elections for small business owners. And finally, we will provide an update on the Taxation of Natural Resources, which will provide an update on the Marcellus and Utica drilling operations as well as what to look for in a lease and the tax treatment of the various types of income being generated by these operations. This seminar is a MUST to attend!

Your instructors for these one-day seminars will be Mark Ribas and Rick Hefner. Mark and Rick are both practicing CPAs with more than 75 years of combined IRS experience.

PTI also continues its association with FastForwardAcademy, Inc (FFA) to ensure that you have access to the best test preparation training material on the market. The Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) being sponsored by the IRS should be a consideration this year. If you are a non-credentialed preparer, you will be unable to represent your clients in discussions with the IRS unless you are a member of the AFSP. FFA test preparation training materials will enable you to attain your goal of increasing your professional credentials including the AFSP. Please visit our Professional Development page for this exciting information.

We look forward to serving you again this year!
