OSU Extension Offers Income Tax Schools

October 13, 2011

Editor: The version of this story sent earlier this afternoon contained information from last year's schools. The dates have changed and the preregistration fee is reduced for this year. The corrected version is below.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State University Extension will offer eight OSU Income Tax Schools across Ohio from Nov. 8 through Dec. 9. These two-day schools are designed for those who have some experience preparing and filing federal and state tax returns for individuals and small businesses. Instruction will focus on federal tax law changes and on the issues that tax preparers may encounter in 2011 returns. The schools also will include an Ohio income tax update.

Participants in the Tax Schools will receive the 2012 RIA Federal Tax Handbook and the 2011 National Income Tax Workbook (including a searchable CD containing the 2004-2010 workbook) prepared by the Land Grant University Tax Education Foundation especially for the income tax schools held in Ohio and 30 other states. The National Income Tax Workbook is available only as a part of the tax school registration. 

Also sponsored by Ohio State University's Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics, instructors will explain and interpret tax regulations and recent changes in tax laws at these schools. Continuing education credit for accountants, enrolled agents, attorneys, and certified financial planners will be offered.

The preregistration fee for each workshop is $330 with late registration $355. The fee includes all materials, lunches and refreshments. The first day program begins at 9 a.m. and adjourns at 5 p.m.; the second day resumes at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 4 p.m. 

In addition, a two-hour ethics session will be offered at three of the tax school locations (Kent, Columbus and Lima) during the first evening of these three schools from 5:15-7:15 p.m. The registration fee for the ethics workshop is $60 per person. 

Complete workshop information for the eight OSU Income Tax Schools and the three ethics workshops can be found at, where a downloadable registration form as well as online registration also is available.
