3 Units - 3 hours lecture
This course covers the theory and application of income tax laws and regulations, including tax strategies and relevant ethical issues. The course explains the preparation of federal and state personal income tax returns, using actual forms, when appropriate. It is intended to be one of two courses that, combined, meet the curriculum guidelines promulgated by the California Tax Education Council (CTEC). Upon successful completion of both courses, students will qualify for a CTEC-approved certificate that enables the holder to prepare income tax returns for compensation in California. In addition, the course meets the “accounting-related” or “business-related” course requirements needed to sit for the CPA exam.


The information in this course description about outside certification was accurate at the time the course was created. However, outside certification may not be offered in a particular semester. Please contact discipline faculty or a counselor for more information. NR
