Summer Tax Institute at the University of California, Davis

While most people aren’t likely to associate the warm summer season with taxes, many tax professionals certainly are. The twentieth annual Summer Tax Institute is scheduled for June 14-17, 2010 in California. The institute is an educational program of the Center for State and Local Taxation.

The Summer Tax Institute is an intensive, 4-day educational program for professionals that attracts attorneys, accountants, state tax officials, tax directors, tax managers, and others seeking expertise in the area of state and local taxation. A certificate of completion (for continuing education purposes) is provided at the end of the program.

The program is said to be highly successful. According to the UC Davis Summer Tax website, www.summertax.org, it states that in written evaluations it has been indicated that over 95 percent of the participants would recommend the Institute to others. Also, students come from both the public and private sectors and represent accounting firms, law firms, state agencies, and private industry from throughout the country.

The site also boasts that tuition includes course materials, daily continental breakfast and lunch, a welcome reception on Monday night, and an excursion to the wine country for “dinner amid the vineyards” on Wednesday evening. It looks like the Summer Tax Institute reaches enrollment capacity most years, therefore, early registration is strongly recommended. What are you waiting for tax professionals?!
