I highly recommend the Tax Law Institute for anyone interested in passing the Tax Court [sic] examination and being approved [sic] to represent taxpayers in the United States Tax Court. I have only been enrolled for approximately one month but I am very pleased with the material and education that I have obtained so far. I have researched many Tax Court training and education programs but the Tax Law Institute offered the most expansive program. The advice and guidance I have received has been exceptional and I look forward to expanding my education with the Tax Law Institute and trust I will succeed.
