Personal Tax (T1) Course

Canadian Personal Tax Course – Leverage Theory with Practical Real-World Guidance 

This Canadian tax course is designed for those who are just starting to practice Canadian tax as a professional. Preparing Canadian personal tax returns can seem pretty complicated. But, did you know that if you study & learn about 20% of Canadian tax law, you will be able to prepare about 80% of personal tax returns? Most Canadians have relatively simple tax matters. After this training, you will learn everything you need to know to prepare the majority of tax returns you will come across.

In this course, you will be able to look over the shoulder of a professional accountant with years of tax preparation experience, and thousands of tax returns under his belt. Better yet, he will provide you with practical, real-world examples and issues that you will encounter in your everyday life and practice.
