Great information. Explained well appreciate the material

DP

Philip is a very good instructor. I have seen him many times with the IRS Continuing Education courses over the past few years. The information was very good, especially about the Letter 6419, Pub 5549 and that tax clients can go online for the letter should they lose it by the time they come to get their taxes done. I believe he accidentally said decedent instead of dependent, but that was actually rather funny and I don't know if anyone else caught it.

MR

Always great to hear a knowledgeable IRS representative speaking about tax related issues. The polling questions were very good and the follow-up explanations helped reinforce the topic matter discussed.
