I began Wiley module 35 – Partnership Taxation this morning. I worked an hour and a half holed-up in a conference room during lunch, and then another two hours after work. I was proficient at some aspects of partnerships, but after watching Yaeger‘s cram DVD section over it and working through the Wiley book with […]
