Webcast: Arizona Income Taxation: Update and Overview (8-11:30)

Description

The Arizona Income Tax Title in the Arizona Revised Statutes creates its own set of unique issues, borrowing from the Internal Revenue Code many times-but also introducing its own unique issues.

This program will look at the structure of the Arizona income tax, with an emphasis on recent developments and changes in the law. The course manual will be based on the 2021 Arizona Income Tax Guide, which will also serve as a reference guide for Arizona 2020 income tax return preparation.
