OSU Extension is pleased to be offering the 51st Annual OSU Income Tax Schools in November- December, 2014. These schools will be offered at 8 convenient locations throughout Ohio and are designed for tax preparers with some experience preparing and filing federal tax returns for individuals and small businesses. Instruction focuses on tax law changes and on the problems that you face in preparing tax returns.  Highly qualified instructors will explain and interpret tax regulations and recent changes in tax laws. These two-day schools offer continuing education credit for attorneys, CPAs, EAs and CFPs, and Other Tax Return Preparers.
