Allison did a fantastic job. The simplicity of the slides and examples made it easy to follow and understand. The speaker presentation and slides were excellent


I was impressed by the knowledge of this presenter. She presented in a way that was easy to understand and placed emphasis on the topics that matter the most to a tax professional


I found the webinar content to be very informative. This webinar needs to be longer. The presenter did not have enough time to finish the webinar. I do not recommend myCPE for CE or CPE. I was cut off from submitting the completed final quiz on my first attempt. myCPE reopened the quiz but most of the questions in "this" final quiz do not go along with this webinar.
