Hi Jeff, I’m taking the exam on 7/1, will 2017 tax law be included in the exam? I’ve got Audio and MCQ but was wondering if I should be included 2017 tax law in my study program. Jeff: Your REG exam will be over the 2017 tax law. REG is still a very conceptual exam. It would be very difficult for the examiners to update the REG question bank with every whim of Congress.
