Very informative. Great presenter. It made it more engaging. His enthusiasm was seen and felt. That made the facts more memorable and examples made it applicable to real life. Excellent!


The presenter did a wonderful job of showing how to use various tax laws to maximize tax savings. The handouts are great resources. This presentation helped to make the confusion of multiple tax laws easier to coordinate to benefit taxpayers.


An extremely knowledgeable presenter provided valuable insights on various methods of depreciation covering the Path and Cares tax acts.


Excellent presentation: well-organized with up-to-date relevant depreciation options and tax planning ideas!


I had trouble answering two of the polling questions as well as having the audio issues. But the topic was interesting and the presenter seemed to be knowledgeable about the subject. I am looking forward to either register again for a new session or watch it over though the online webinar archive.


This was a very informative presentation and I will do more research into the subject since so many changes have occurred.
