Proficiency Part 1

Application of your Tax Law knowledge to the preparation of example returns

These problems are designed to test your proficiency in preparing a complete return - including the New Jersey return.

This year we are only doing two problems because all new and returning preparers should also have done several Familiarization problems. You might consider requiring your preparers to do the Kent problem in addition to the two problems below.

You must use the TY2015 version of TaxSlayer Practice Lab, NOT the TY2016 version.
