Education seminars are developed in accordance with IRS standards to qualify as continuing education. However, not all seminars will qualify, for example; Idaho Update is not considered federal tax law. Our goal is to develop local affordable education opportunities in an atmosphere where we can learn from each other’s experiences.


IATC 2020 Convention

 June 24-25-26, 2020


Galaxy Event Center

 1385 Blue Marlin Ln

 Meridian, ID



 Who knew tax classes could be so much fun?  After 2 years of working hard to keep up with TCJA it is time to build up from the basics like Legos.  With a myriad of choices and spectacular speakers, the hardest part of this convention will be choosing which classes not to take! The Galaxy Center is the newest event venue in the Boise area and boasts state-of-the-art audio visual, fabulous food, remote bar, and is surrounded by at least 16 family fun attractions. Our dynamic and engaging speakers are known for keeping you on the edge of your seat.  There are door prizes and a bit of entertainment squeezed in for fun.  This is the tax convention to attend.

 Fun & Safe

 Galaxy Center is going the extra mile to ensure your safety.  Everything is cleaned to the extreme and measures are taken for safe serving of meals. Galaxy has plenty of room for us to spread out and has enhanced and implemented procedures to keep us all safe. Tables that usually sit 10 will seat 3-4. We are following the guidelines Governor Little has given us to help Idaho Rebound. For More details from Galaxy Event Center,
