Online Testimonials

-- One of the better tax seminars I have attended in recent memory. Very informative and extremely well-presented. Presenters were all very enthusiastic about the topics presented and kept me awake and engaged.

-- While I will continue to use the online program, I was very happy to hear that in-person sessions were held. I have used other online programs the last few years and this one is by far the best.

-- I thought the online webinar was excellent. Informative speakers and great material.


-- In my opinion, the in-person conference was excellent between the space, the location, and it was easy to communicate with the people. I personally loved everything and I felt I was in a friendly place. I hope to continue to attend the UMass tax school in the future. -- Vivian M.

-- Everything was great. I am glad to be back in-person. I am able to learn more in person and connect with others. -- William C.

-- The presenters were very professional and very knowledgeable on the subjects presented. This was by far the best UMass tax school/tax seminar that I have attended and I have been going to this school for 20+ years. -- Gayous P.
