Tax classes scheduled at UAM


Arkansas residents can get up to speed on the latest tax code changes at one of 10 two-day Income Tax Schools being held throughout the state from Oct. 28-Dec. 5.

“These are open to professional tax preparers, small business owners or anyone who wants to learn or refresh their knowledge going into tax season,” said Kim Magee, extension economic development program associate for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.

Each class runs from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and meets the 16-hour credit requirement for continuing professional education as defined by the State Board of Public Accountancy. This years class includes two hours of ethics training.

The Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture will provide tax manuals and reference materials. Registration is $220 per person, except at the Batesville school, where lunch is included in the $235 fee.

The instructors are tax experts with extensive experience with the Internal Revenue Service. Representatives from Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration will also conduct sessions.

In Southeast Arkansas, a class is scheduled Nov. 11-12 at the University of Arkansas at Monticello School of Forest Resources Conference Room, 110 University Court.

Registration will be accepted until the last day of the conference provided space is available. Registering early will ensure that tax materials and seating are available.

For registration materials or more information, contact Aly Signorelli or Kim Magee at 501-671-2072 or your local University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service county office.
