2019 Federal Tax Course - Level 1

Date -
Location - Kellogg Conference Center

Event Description

April 22-26, 2019 - Kellogg Conference Center, E. Lansing, MI
For more than 40 years, Tax Executives Institute's week-long courses have been a cornerstone in the training of rising corporate tax professionals. These moderately priced courses have been well attended because they pay for themselves may times over and are considered the best value for dollars spent on training. 
Beginning Monday, April 22nd, TEI's Education Fund will sponsor its 2019 Federal Tax Course - Level 1 at the Kellogg Conference Center on the campus of Michigan State University in E. Lansing, Michigan. The course, which is designed for individuals with less than five year' corporate tax experience in federal matters, features a best-in-class faculty and unparalleled networking opportunities.
** For 2019, we will begin our sessions at 3:00 pm on Monday, April 22, to allow for registrants to travel to Michigan Monday morning, rather than travelling on Easter Sunday.  Registrants with lodging included can check into their rooms on Monday afternoon.
