2017 GEAR UP 1040 Tax Seminar - BATH
November 29-30, 2017 (Wednesday-Thursday)
Eagle Eye Golf Club, Bath, Michigan

14 CPEs in Taxation and 2 CPEs in Ethics Available

NO tax seminar covers the issues like GEAR UP's nationally-acclaimed 1040 seminar. From tax changes to court rulings to revenue bulletins and more, GEAR UP walks you through every issue that impacts the preparation of 1040 returns in 2018. To insure no "last minute" tax change gets past you, your GEAR UP 1040 registration also includes a free registration to GEAR UP's "Last Minute Tax Update Webinar" held in late December! It's an important bonus to have with major tax reform bills circulating in Congress that rival the Tax Reform Act of 1986! You can't afford not to attend one of our 2017 1040s. Seating is limited in Novi and is sure to sell out, so reserve your seat now while they last!
