John Gatti presents at State Bar of Michigan's "Fundamentals of Taxation"

October 12, 2017

On October 12, John Gatti, member, presented "Types of Taxes & Basics of Income Taxation" as part of the State Bar of Michigan - Taxation Section's "Fundamentals of Taxation" program.

The Fundamentals of Taxation program is a new initiative by the Taxation Section to provide instruction on the basics of taxation and on spotting tax issues that arise in transactional matters and tax controversies.

The courses are intended both for new tax attorneys seeking an introduction to the practice of tax law and for more experienced tax and transactional attorneys who are seeking a refresher course. There are two tracks: (1) a core track, with a broad but comprehensive focus, for those with less experience in tax matters; and (2) an advanced track with in-depth analysis of specialized tax issues for more experienced professionals. Other tax practitioners, including CPAs and lawyers practicing at accounting firms, should also find the program useful.
