​What you will learn

This course introduces a proven process for consistently accurate T1 tax preparation services with a professional client interview and document management system, as well as a thorough understanding of tax preparation for the five anchor profiles upon which every personal tax return is based - credit filing, employees, families and children, investors, and seniors.

An open book approach is great for learning. It helped me to go back and review the materials over again so that I could get the right answers on the quiz but it also provided a good understanding of all the material. I think this course has been very helpful and will enable me to start my first year of T1s with my company in a much more effective way.
