2017 Income Tax Seminars

The 2017 schedules are posted as available.

The MSU Income Tax Seminars are for people who prepare income tax returns for others. Look at the topics to get a good idea of the subject matter for our two-day Federal Tax Update and Law with two hours of ethics. Our federal book is developed each year in cooperation with universities in 25 other states. These sessions are taught at the intermediate level with instructors at locations around Michigan.

Many Farm Tax Practitioners have attended separate MSU Farm Tax Seminars which emphasize taxes that affect farmers and farm businesses. Other specialized seminars may be helpful to you. See short descriptions below.

S Corporation Seminar

Will not be taught this year.

Partnership Seminar

Details for the partnership seminar will be under the Fall tab.

Fall and January Seminars

Dates and locations for any of the twenty, 2-day sessions are available for fall 2017 (Federal Tax Update and Law plus Ethics). Later sessions tend to have more people so consider an earlier session, if appropriate. Two, 1-day (Federal Tax Update and Law) seminars will be available In January 2018. One in Lansing and the other in Sterling Heights.

Farm Income Tax Seminars

Registration will be available in July for any one of the seven locations. Dates are posted.

Annual Federal Tax Refresher
