Mr.J.Patrick given great presentation on S-Corp & form 1120 . I had attended his previous courses on myCPE and they are all great. I will use his great experiences to increase my own accounting experiences. I will do small business clients that are S Corps, partnerships, C Corps, or LLCs. I will take more courses from him.


This is the best course I've ever seen about the business tax preparation topic on myCPE. It teaches you how to solve the REAL problems in both bookkeeping and tax preparation. Thanks, Patrick very much for sharing your experience and skills as well as the case studies.


Patrick did a phenomenal job in giving an in-depth webinar on the intricacies of the S Corp preparation. It is always great to understand the IRS insights regarding their taxation processes. Thanks, myCPE again for bringing an informative presentation.


Yes, it is definitely a good match for me. The instructor has done an excellent job of explaining the concepts of the schedules and forms. Thank you.


I love the course and the instructor. Preparing a C Corp tax return is tough but this course makes it a lot easier than before. I have my own practice in my accounting business. I work with small businesses and only a few are C Corps. I can do C Corps, S Corps, partnerships, and LLCs now. I can do many business tax returns now.
