The Tax Practitioners' Institute is an annual two-day event hosted by Westminster College. The institute offers 16 continuing education accounting credits for CPA licensing. Of the 16 credits, 14 are in tax and 2 are in ethics.
Session topics and experts are carefully chosen each year. Tax professionals from the accounting and legal communities provide instruction and guidance on the most up-to-date interpretation of relevant tax laws. Participants are highly encouraged to share comments and ask questions during the sessions. CPE certificates of attendance are provided to participants at the end of the seminar.
The 2019 Tax Practitioners' Institute will be Dec. 12–13, 2019.
The registration fee for the 2-day seminar—including breakfast, refreshments, and
lunches—is $275 per person. All proceeds support undergraduate and graduate business scholarships.
