Taxprep Personal Tax Update Seminar Tour

Staying current on tax, form, software and e-service changes is critical to the success of your personal tax season. Only Personal Taxprep seminars can provide you with all the essential information you need in a single session!

Our full day seminar will not only present the numerous tax and form changes for 2019 T1 returns, but also show you how they have been implemented in Personal Taxprep. We’ll discuss important software enhancements, changes to CRA e-services and delve into some Best Practices with respect to preparing personal returns.

This seminar will be presented using the new enhanced version of Taxprep which will replace “Classic” Taxprep this tax season. While the enhanced version uses the same forms and calculations as the current version of Taxprep, it has a modernized interface and new features designed to improve productivity.

Our limited group size encourages group discussion and our in-person seminar format allows you to network with other Personal Taxprep users.

Special Offer: Register 3 attendees for the price of 2!

The ability to download virtually all T-slips has been a game-changer for T1 return preparation. During the seminar, we’ll look at changes being made for 2019, including an enhanced reconciliation for T3 slips as well as the ability to download tuition slips. And we’ll review best practices for dealing with the downloaded data.


Upcoming Changes

During the seminar, we’ll also discuss some changes that will come into effect in 2020, such as changes to the employee stock option deduction and the new digital subscription tax credit.
