I have taken a couple of seminars wtih Patrick Garverick. He knows his materials very well and does a great introduction in the cousre materials. I will continue to take classes from him.

RT

J. Patrick did a great job in presenting the information regarding S Corps owned by Trusts and the intricacies of tax laws and how it applies to them. A lot of information that I wasn't familiar with and it broadened my understanding and allows me to apply what i learned to situations that apply.

VC

J. Patrick does a great job presenting in the fact that he gives viewers a classroom type feel as opposed to the just the mundane reading of a PowerPoint. He has impeccable time management skills in completing the course presentation without rushing. His examples help paint a picture and drive home an understanding of the topics. Thanks for the great webinar!

RL

I didnot have sufficient knowledge, this is an advanced course for me. instructor was very knowledgeable, however very fast paced.

MS

The content was thorough - and more than I was bargaining for! I am a bookkeeper looking to learn more about my S Corp clients. I didn't realize this would be such an indepth training. This training is perfect for tax preparers doing S Corp returns!

LM

I learned what I was looking for and more; I left with a complete understanding of basis and why it is important. Instructor did an amazing job!

DB

It is difficult to sit through an 8 hr course. The instructor made it interesting to keep my attention. I enjoyed the opportunity to rewind and review the points where I needed more attention. Really enjoyed the class overall. I liked his teaching style and delivery. One of the best I have attended. THANK YOU

VC

My overall experience was very well. Because the instructor was very good, I took his QBI class too. However, this is the second time I filled this out. Thinking that this may be the reason I have not received my CE certificate. I also sent a note via chat.

VF

I enjoyed the delivery of the webinar. It is possible only with a skilled presenter having years of practical knowledge. I recommend Patrick and myCPE because I can recall more than I thought I can.

LS

An absolutely amazing webinar. Delivered exactly what it said it would. Covered complicated topics in a way that they became easy to understand. Thanks myCPE and Patrick.

ER

Tons of valuable information, lots of hand-outs to refer to and a recording of the session to enjoy it over and over again. There was so much knowledge in this session that I need to go back and do it again to maximize the full benefit .Thanks.

HT

Great presentation! I enjoyed listening to the presenter and gained valuable knowledge about Amending Tax Returns and more... Time well spent. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and knowledge

SP

The quality of this course and others that I have taken are good and they are reasonably priced for the material presented. The presenters are good and display a wealth of knowledge, I received a lot of information that I need for tax representation. A very good course. I highly recommend.

GB

This was the best webinar that I have ever attended. I like the way that the instructor presents the program. Patrick is the best instructor that I have ever had on an instructional webinar. Look forward to more of his webinars.

LL

Instructor gave visual examples of what he was talking about which made the class more interesting and the material more understandable. Great Job!

NB

Very good seminar

DT

Very informative

DG

this was a great refresher after not doing partnership returns for a few years

CS

Loved this class, would even take it again to hear some of the gems of info the instructor presented! Thank you!

ADA

Great instructor! Easy to understand with lots of examples and tips!

LM

Having attended seminars for the past 20+ years, I can confidently recommend this tax update. Patrick held my attention for 8 hours with his lively presentation, relevant material and white board examples. Sad I haven’t found him sooner!

KB

This was a great webinar. The presenter had great energy and covered very in-depth topics to help us provide better service for S-corps. I can't wait to take more of his courses!

MW

Patrick Garveck did an outstanding job

MG

Best instructor ever! And that's over a long career in this ever changing tax climate!

MG

Pat Garverick is probably the best tax instructor I have ever encountered and it's been a lot of years that I've been taking CPE. Would definitely recommend any of his classes. I'm not a power point learner - I liked his style and examples.

TE

Excellent class. Handout materials are very detailed and well organized. Instructor is very knowledgeable and presents the material with very good examples.

JB

Great webinar. I will be referring to the handouts during this tax season.

TS

I like the way that this webinar is not just following a slide show. Good teaching tactics.

JK

Pat does an amazing job of synthesizing massive amounts of information and presenting the information in a digestible format. I highly recommend this class and any other class he presents.

MM

It was all good. Thank you.

TC

This was not only the best class I have ever attended on partnerships. It was one of the best I have ever attended on any subject.

TD

Best instructor ever!

JN

good experience for studying

GP

The CPE instruction was as advertised. The content and materials were perfect for the time allotted for the instruction. Pat Garverick, the instructor, was simply outstanding. He was obviously very knowledgeable about the subject matter and presented the material in an easy-to-learn manner. The training materials were perfect to supplement the instructor's lectures. I would definitely recommend this instructor to my colleagues, and I will return to take additional CPE courses myself. Thank you for a very informative lecture.

CM

There was a lot of good information in the course.

KF

The final exam process was painful. The course was great.

LG

I wish I had more time to go over this it was excellent, thank you

LC

Excellent updated review.

AR

it was very accurate and updated

LG

I was good, the material presented was relevant and up to date.

MM

This was better than going to the class room.

EA

The class itself was extremely informative. The questions asked throughout and the final questions were not specifically covered in the video and varied greatly from super confusing (ex. requesting a MAGI threshold amount, but not telling WHAT the threshold amount was for) to basic to overly specific and complicated. Could the presenter create his own questions which were actually part of the presentation?!

KF

Great course and great instructor!

It is a long seminar but worth it. The handout is so valuable!

ST

The instructor was fantastic. He demonstrated a level of overall tax knowledge rarely seen anymore. Communication was quite effective and interesting at all times. He's a keeper!!

CH

Pats style of teaching was awesome. I learned more in this class than I have in a long time. He explained things in a way that helped me learn well. I am a visual learner and his style worked great.

RT

COVERED A LOT OF MATERIAL IN A SHORT TIME. MADE ME AWARE OF THE CHANGES AND MY NEED TO FOLLOWUP

RB

I thought the topic was well covered.

MG

THE INFORMATION WAS VALUABLE THAT I CAN UTILIZE

MT

Was a long class but I learned Ali and was reminded how things work.

CTT

would have liked to purchase his materials instead of printing them. /that is my preference

TP

Good review and update on tax issues for this current year.

JL

Well taught and great examples

CL

The course was very helpful. The only minor suggestion is that it would be helpful to have a handout on QBI calculations that Pat presents in writing on screen as a worksheet that we could use in our practices.

AW

One of the very BEST webinars ever!

TT

I was very impressed by the presentation. He has excellent material and am looking forward to attending more of his courses.

Pat is a great instructor

JS

Pat Garverick is a great presenter. I have attended a few of his webinars. He always makes the material easy to follow and his examples are a great help.

JL

I love seminars by Patrick

LL

Pat was excellent! Plenty of case studies, great explanations. I also like the way he is not judgmental or political and does not criticize one side or the other. Much appreciated !

CL

Other than a couple of times when the "poll questions" showed an error message, I was impressed with the technology and how smooth the live webinar worked. The instructor was excellent. The materials were also very good.

LL

Excellent presentation with great cases to review. Thank you

CL

The myCPE platform worked very well. Pat Garverick is an excellent instructor. I couldn't be more pleased!

FM

The instructor has great way of presenting and using multi media approach. He is very organized and easy to follow. His presentation style is flawless and very enjoyable . Thank you for sourcing this presenter. Would sign up for his courses again and again.

KDEE

Great class!

LC

Pat is the most interesting presenter!!

The presenter was very knowledgeable and articulate. He used real life examples which made it relatable. He was excited to get various questions and interaction. He was excellent.

EL

This seminar exceeded my expectations and totally fulfilled my need for a tax update!

BE

Excellent

PSW

The materials provided were excellent and very useful. The presentation was excellent also. I taught personal and business taxes for many, many years, and I know how much work goes into preparing. This was one of the best seminars I have ever taken and much appreciated.

TM

Good class

LC

Great instructor. To the point, and clear speaker

TB

Excellent presentation. The materials shared and the method of teaching were very informative and engaging. Overall an excellent webinar and well worth the time!

EL

EXCELLENT TAX SEMINAR

LM

It was a lot of information at one time and he had to rush through the last two hours. All the information is valuable.

EL

EXCELLENT STUDY MATERIALS AND BEST INSTRUCTOR FOR CPE CLASS

SK

This was one of the better live webinars I attended. Most tax subjects are not "easy" to keep people engaged, but having examples that we also work through really helps.

PS

As a new preparer, the information on this webinar was extremely useful

LW

Best tax CPE ever taken!

GJ

Thank you.

BG

myCPE courses are packed with relevant information and great presentation.

WL

The course is very good, but 8 hours of Education is a lot to digest, Is there a record available? it's paid course we should get the record so we can review the course!!

DK

Great course and the instructor was very knowledgeable and tech savvy.

EW

Really liked that there were so many examples.

JD

Great practical application with the case study

SJ

I truly enjoyed the training. I am going to take more courses by the instructor. He did a great job at covering everything and letting us know when we would need more indepth training.

SC

It was excellent. Patrick is an excellent teacher. I love his pace.

DJ

Presenter/Instructor is amazing!

KK

The platform is easy to use/navigate, the speaker is very knowledgable

AB

This is a really good course! I learned a lot!

AH

GOOD material and instructor, but not enough time to finish it . thank you to management they provided recording so we can review material again.

LR

Worth every cent

AA

Great!

JN

The presentation was very effective. Most presenters drone on for hours simply reading from PowerPoint slides. The presentation tools were excellent, particularly the use of case studies with back-and-forth reference to Code, Regs, etc. using a "chalkboard' style. The book in pdf form is a real bonus.

LM

guy knows his stuff. good class

AM

Very commutative, with facts and knowledge of teaching 1065 formation and tax treatments. Helpful accurate class.

MG

I would really appreciate receiving the written materials before the seminar begins, as I didn't have time to print them out so I could make notes directly in the book. The seminar was terrific, but there is so much information to absorb. I can understand having an 8 hour seminar when it is in person, but maybe break it into two 4-hour sections for webinars?

MP

I took this class as I do not have experience in partnership taxes as my skill sets are with individual expatriate tax compliance from one of big four accounting firm. It is an excellent class for the candidates who are inexperience in partnership taxation. Thanks for a great material and going through the example. The only item I would Like to add is why the material covered 2019 when we are currently into the 2020 or 2021 season. Should be updated with the current year.

JP

Great

JP

Great topic.

MB

I almost wish I could listen all over again because i'm sure there were things I missed. The presenter did a great job and you can definitely tell he's done this a few years.

DG

I would like time on the balance sheet, or a class dedicated to the balance sheet and then tie into the M1-2

JS

Very knowledgeable instructor

LS

Well organized and presented well.

RC

Was amazing and clear. Thank you!

KW

This was a very informative session. I plan on taking the workshop on the 1065 and the basis class with this instructor.

JC

great job

LS

Course was very detailed and the instructor did an excellent job presenting the material.

RP

All My-CPE webinars I have taken in he past year are great. However, figuring out how to give feedback or ask questions during the webinar remains a mystry to me.

CV

Great way to familiarize yourself with S-corporation rules.

JL

It was a fabulous webinar

Very informative material and the lecturer explains complicated tax concepts well by using examples.

MD

excellent content, i would like to watch it again because there is so much information relevant to Tax Season. Also want to check on his other seminars

RS

Great program. More work on capital basis and balance sheet is needed...perhaps a separate webinar.

JC

I was unsure how it'd be to do an 8-hour class. It went by quickly and the presenter had a pleasant voice.

RG

I really like that the instructor had the book material behind him at all times so we can follow up.

LP

The class is very interesting. Even though, it was very long I was able get the most out of it.

TE

Pat did a phenomenal job in presenting this information. His work through examples were excellent.

SJ

I learned a lot during this presentation. I spent 18 years at the IRS conducting business tax audits prior to starting my own business. With what I would consider a very good background in tax law, I was fully captivated by Pat, the material he put together, and the overall class.

LD

I thought it was a great CPE class.

DR

Lots of material. Good job and personal.

SP

I need to pick `up the reference materials used in the course. I was very pleased with the internet software used by the presenter. Also, the presenter maintained time control very well.

AK

There's only so much you can do to stay focused for 8 hours, but ignoring this the webinar was very engaging and informative.

AQ

This seminar was the best one as of today!!!

TE

Truly enjoyed this wecast. Exceeded my expectations.

Great job!

MB

The course was very informative.

PN

good job on learning objectives

RY

I’m glad there was relevant information rather than textbook definitions

SM

The lecture and handouts were very good. The quiz and test took a while to complete. If you are looking for a slam-dunk 8 hour CPE, this is not the course for you.

MK

I needed this webinar on basis for S Corps. I would take another class on it.

BP

JI

Presenter was great and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately not nearly enough time to cover everything. But still very helpful!

LW

This is by far the best Webinar I've attended all year. The information was detailed but presented in an accessible way. Presenter was very skilled and kept things moving throughout the entire 8 hours!

HH

Excellent seminar!

NC

Content was covered very thoroughly by the instructor

TM

Good.

DS

This course was very nice. The only thing that was difficult is we aren’t able to pause the video. There were times I had to answer the door or go bathroom and whatever I missed during that time was gone. The instructor does really good with repeating certain things.

DC

Excellent experience and I would recommend this course to S Corp tax preparers and individual income tax preparers who prepare individual taxes for S Corp individuals.

AV

This course was fantastic. I have been preparing S corp returns for a long time and wanted to brush up on a few things. I really learned some of the missing links. The only reason I have given "agree" instead of "strongly agree" in the course is because Pat did not go over the Balance Sheet part in the course material. He covered page 1, schedule k, schedule m-1, m-2. It would have taken only extra 10 minutes to go over the balance sheet.

BB

Organized and well presented and backed up by plenty of examples and documentation. Excellent!

AM

learnt a lot

Patrick did a great job of presenting the material. The pace of webinar was good and content held my interest.
