This course will prepare you to be confident in preparing your own taxes and the taxes of others. This course will visually and logically explain the Tax Law and its applications through examples and scenarios. Tax Law is a very interesting topic. It is not a topic that can be easily memorized, but, however, it is a topic that requires constant research and reference to appropriate materials. This course will enable you to do exactly that.

You will find videos that explain the rules. These videos are followed by another set of videos with examples and scenarios that will help you understand the application of the Tax Law even better. All the materials that I am talking about in the course are FREE and I tell you where to find them and how to use them.

You can study the course at your own pace. However, I believe that you can finish it very fast since the videos are very descriptive. Get equipped with the proper materials, review the course, and start preparing tax returns!

The price of this course will gradually increase. I suggest that you take action at the price you currently see.

Instructor Biography

Professor Stefan Ignatovski, Entrepreneur, Investor, Professor

An Accounting Professor, Investor and Entrepreneur who teaches at multiple colleges in the US, including University of Washington. Stefan has also established multiple companies and invested in multiple start-up companies. Additionally, he is the author of the book "What College Didn't Teach You!". His area of expertise is concentrated in Accounting Forensics, which focuses on financial fraud, creative accounting, and anti-money laundering.

In every course Stefan makes, you will find the difference in teaching. He has his own way of creating interesting videos (less than 5 minutes, of course!) in which you will find everything you need to know about a specific topic. The DIFFERENCE is that his videos are fun to watch and will give you the desired "Aha!" moment. You will never forget the information, since each one is very descriptive.

Stefan's classes are very dynamic and make you eager to learn!
