Tax Season Readiness

 

Wednesday, January 6, 2021
10:00–10:20 AM CT

 

This past tax season was unlike anything we’ve ever experienced as the impact of the pandemic forced all of us to re-evaluate long established business models, working environments, and business practices. Many of us were forced to quickly adjust to new work environments, and digital collaboration accelerated like never before, becoming the new norm. During this session, we will share what Intuit is doing to help ensure your firm is ready for the upcoming season as you continue to work with your clients to help them succeed.
