1040 Boot Camp


Course Description:
Several years ago, Taxspeaker’s President Bob Jennings began recognizing the lack of younger faces in live crowds around the country. He attributed it to one major problem: the failure of today’s university accounting programs to properly educate students that 50% of the US economy is driven by small business while training students exclusively for “Big 4” employment as, essentially, taxpayer-funded Big 4 training programs. Our solution was to develop a “1040 Boot Camp” to train non-traditional employees in how to prepare individual income tax returns as taught by actual small-firm owning, professional speaker tax professionals. The course has proven to be extraordinarily popular since we started it in 2019. Each speaker is a firm owner with at least 20 years experience. Designed for the staff person with 0-3 years of experience it provides hands-on training for non-traditional employees in preparing Forms 1040, A,B,C,D, E and depreciation. Each day ends with a student’s manually-prepared 1040, which is then explained individually (but not graded or picked up) by the professional instructors. Attendees in 2022 commented that they were afraid of the case study but found it exhilaratingly useful, and that the training was immediately useful. ***Not applicable for CPE credit***
