Tax Planning Boot Camp – Virtual Conference
Tax reform presents a great opportunity to transform your practice and increase your value as a trusted advisor for clients through proactive tax planning. When we surveyed tax pros who attended our tax reform webinars, more than 70 percent said they plan to perform tax planning services for at least half of their clients in 2018.
The ProConnect Tax Planning Boot Camp is the conference to educate staff, define tax planning strategies and transform your practice to deliver continuous, forward-looking services that help your clients prosper. Many firms have traditionally focused on tax preparation, viewing tax planning as a side business when requested. Tax reform provides the stimulus to change the paradigm to become forward-looking tax strategists who proactively minimize taxes. We will teach you how to view your clients holistically, across all their business activities and goals, and develop ongoing tax strategies that reinforce your value as a trusted advisor. Practitioners will share how to transform your tax preparation practice into a tax planning practice. We’ll also provide ideas to better market your tax planning expertise, and share tools to help you be productive and stay deeply engaged with your clients.
Our goal is to help you power prosperity for your clients through effective tax planning strategies, proven business practices and cutting-edge collaboration solutions. While the live event has passed, you can watch the recording of this six-hour, engaging conference. You do not have to be a current customer to view. No CPE/CE credit is available for watching the recording.
