The objective of this course is to train new, rusty, or returning-to-practice staff to prepare a complicated federal partnership tax return. The course includes a chapter-by-chapter, hands-on approach to completing Form 1065. As details are discussed within each chapter, information is provided to prepare an intricate Form 1065.
