These are only a few testimonials by our students.
I now have a good overview of the mechanics of the 1065 and 1120S Forms. I will be taking more of the existing offerings. Very well done!
The instructor clarified some points for me in her lecture that I had never fully grasped before, and the exercises really helped me to think through and apply the concepts. I found the class format to be more helpful than many of the lecture-only CPE workshops that I've attended. Thank you!
April, You are an anointed and gifted teacher! I have done several CE in the past; and nothing compares to your program. It is the best I have found for practical application; making sense of areas that weren't absolutely clear; and digging in and understanding the concepts and forms line by line. I am thoroughly enjoying the program and platform! I was able to brief the manual, then watch the video; follow along with classwork; then complete quiz and independent homework without any of the answer keys first - I really wanted to challenge myself. I'll now go back and actually open and look at answer keys. I'm looking forward to having PNW Tax School be my first go to for all tax issues and areas that I really want to have top knowledge, practical application, and confidence!
I just took a webinar with April yesterday (5/14/09) – it was a great experience and a really good way to get Continuing Ed hours. It’s very convenient, especially for those of us who have a hard time setting aside an entire day for a CE class. The price is right, too. I know April is offering free classes to OSTC next week (that’s incredibly generous), but the regular price - $40 for a 3-hour class is a great deal!
The quality of the class I took (Basis of Assets) was excellent – April is a wonderful teacher and the “class manual” was very well written and informative.
Thanks go out to PNWTaxSchool for such a thorough class. I was able to pass the Enrolled Agent Part 1 individual the first time from just going through your basic tax law course. I can't tell you how pleased I was with your course. Other tax preparers that I show the course work load say they can't believe how thorough your course is. The other people had to study for months after their basic course to go sit for the EA exams. Keep up the good work. Thanks to everyone for the help and support.
Just thought you would also like to here that I passed the Oregon exam with 85%. Go Team. You can add another passed person to the list.
Thanks again and great teaching.
I passed the State exam with a 92% (didn't know if you received the results or not). I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and patience over this last year. I would recommend your course to anyone who asked.
Again, thank you!
I normally satisfy my continuing ed through my employer who has a tax school here. I really like being able to do this at my own pace and not have to adhere to a specific time slot each week. You give adequate information but also require and encourage additional research which I feel is important, too. I like the self-paced forum. It allows you to complete your hours and gives you the flexibility for unforeseen situations that come up in your personal life.
April (course instructor), I like the personal situations you share that you have encountered. They help clarify and give direction for those sometimes odd situations we encounter.Again, the self-paced on-line availability is, well, priceless. And, again, your program gives you a good basis, but requires some research-always invaluable.
Good job putting the course material together. April is very knowledgable and a good teacher.
The Cost is Reasonable, the Materials (Book) was well Organized, My E-mails were answered wthin reasonable time, it was good learning Experience for me, an Excellent Experience I might Add.
Do not fix what is not Broken! The Course is excellent. If you want an indepth study course PNWT is an Excellent Choice. The Web page is easy to Use. This Course is not a watered down Course, it is for the Serious Minded in Obtaining a well Rounded Education in Tax Preparation. If you want a Certificate; a piece of Paper there are plenty of Generic Schools out there. If you want a Quality Education for an affordable price and Well Rounded Basis for your Practice from my Personal Experience I recommend Pacific Northwest Tax School.
I was very impressed with both the materials and lecture, thank you April! And I learned quite a bit. It was definitely worth the time and effort I put into it, even though that ended up being more than 4 hours.
One more note, I especially found it useful for April to show both the incorrect and correct ways to treat goodwill. The tax return I am presently working on includes both sale of a business and sale of rental property; this course will prove to be quite useful as I prepare the return.
I liked how it (the Course) completed my understanding as related to resultant handling of self-employment income on individual returns. I now have a good overview of the mechanics of the 1065 and 1120S Forms. I will be taking more of the existing offerings. Very well done!
I did want to thank you for putting together such great classes. I took the LTC exam last week and passed. I didn’t have much time to study, so I passed the test because of the thoroughness of your classes.
I look forward to taking more classes from Pacific Northwest Tax School in the future and am encouraging my employees to at least enroll in your Oregon class. Excellent material.
I passed the State Test with a 91%. Thank you for all your great instruction.
The instructor is funny and great!
The overall blend of instruction, class work, homework, quizzes and tests, although strenuous, provided a good overall understanding of the subject matter.
Positive, fun atmosphere.
Thanks for making what could have been a very dry and boring class, interesting, fun and an all together enjoyable experience!
Really got my brain going – was in awe with instructor’s knowledge.
Very efficient. Very little wasted time.
Materials are set up for easy reference use after class
Fast-paced - Lots of information.
The material was presented in a different way than other classes I have taken so this really clicked into place for me. I really liked the 3-hour more in depth look at a single subject. I'll be back!
Everything was good!
