Several years ago, Taxspeaker’s President Bob Jennings began recognizing the lack of younger faces in live crowds around the country. He attributed it to one major problem: the failure of today’s university accounting programs to properly educate students that 50% of the US economy is driven by small business while training students exclusively for “Big 4” employment as, essentially, taxpayer-funded Big 4 training programs.

Our solution was to develop a “1040 Boot Camp” to train non-traditional employees in how to prepare individual income tax returns as taught by actual small-firm owning, professional speaker tax professionals. The first two national courses sold out within days in 2019, followed by similar results in 2020. Each speaker is a firm owner with at least 20 years experience who personally still prepare over 200 tax returns annually.

Designed for the staff person with 0-3 years of experience it provides hands-on training for non-traditional employees in preparing Forms 1040, A,B,C,D, E and depreciation. Each day ends with a student’s manually-prepared 1040, which is then explained individually (but not graded or picked up) by the professional instructors. Attendees have commented that they were afraid of the case studies but found them exhilaratingly useful.
