Utica, NY (11/20/2012)- The recent presidential election has a significant impact on upcoming changes in tax laws.
To assist accountants and tax preparers, Utica College will offer its annual Tax Practitioner Institute on Monday, Dec. 3 and Tuesday, Dec. 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. The Tax Practitioner Institute will offer accountants the opportunity learn recent changes and updates in tax laws while also receiving 16 Continuing Professional Education Units (CPEs).
The Fall 2012 Tax Practitioner Institute will be facilitated by Gary J. Hoff, E.A., extension specialist in taxation, from the University of Illinois.

"There is no question that my careers at GE and Rubbermaid wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me." "I chose business as a major for the financial background it gave me. My UC degree gave me the opportunity to build my career at General Electric, where I spent 31 years, ending up as senior vice-president of corporate marketing and sales. I then went on to run Rubbermaid for six years and ended up as CEO. There is no question that the GE career and the Rubbermaid career wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me."
