Presenter: Lisa Ihm, EA and Ryan Reichert, EA

Lisa Ihm, EA has been teaching seminars nationwide since 1986. Rather than simply reciting the rules, she breaks them down and uses a methodical approach to help you understand how tax laws will apply to taxpayers in the "real world". Then she digs below the surface to make you think about how tax laws affect your clients and how you can use those laws to your clients’ benefits. Her fast-paced, engaging style will make this seminar both informative and fun! She works and lives in Coronado, CA and can be reached by e-mail at [email protected] or through her website at www.BrassTax.com


Ryan Reichert, EA’s background in tax preparation, business, financial planning, and tax research make him especially equipped to tackle the interpretation of new tax legislation. He will cover the California conformity (or nonconformity) to this year’s new tax laws and let you know when a CA adjustment is needed and how to make it. His “CA Adjustments” desktop reference card will be a valuable resource for you next tax season.
