Fall Tax School

The Fall Tax School sessions begin in late October and run through early December each year. For over 70 years, the University of Illinois Fall Tax School has fulfilled tax professionals' annual continuing education needs. Each year, we present content that updates tax professionals on new tax laws and regulations and addresses areas of tax law that are sometimes troublesome or confusing. Additionally, we cover ethics, entities, and advanced Form 1040 subjects. Join us to find out why over 5,000 tax professionals attend Fall Tax School each year at various locations throughout the state.

In-Depth Series

The In-Depth Series is offered each summer and/or fall based upon requests from Fall Tax School participants. The 2016 In-Depth Series includes Cutting Edge Tax Opportunities for Growing Estates and Farm Family Life Stages: Practical Estate Planning Tax Tips.


The Tax School offers webinars that allow busy tax practitioners to keep up to date on the latest content without leaving their office. In January 2017, the Tax School held the live webinar 2016 Illinois Tax Update.
