"If it concerns litigation and taxes then you should be talking to us 1.888.317.4489"

Meet "LB" Carpenter, CPA, PA, USTCP, Miami FL. He completed TLI's 2016 US Tax Court Non-attorney Bar Admissions Exam Prep Program and TLI's 2017 US Tax Court Apprenticeship Program. He was admitted to the US Tax Court Bar in 2017. Initially, he partnered with a local attorney to provide pre-trial tax litigation support. LB has increased billable hours of his CPA practice since becoming United States Tax Court Practitioner, all due to inquiring attorneys who seek consultation or true expert witness testimony. LB understands both the litigation side and accounting side of civil tax controversies that are heard by the US Tax Court. During the 2018 Testing Cycle he lectured USTCP bar candidates. In April 2017, after receiving his "pass" letter from the Court, LB wrote the following testimonial to the Chair of the Teaching Faculty, " Good news came in the mail today. They say I passed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  Without your help and diligence in feeding this information to our brains, I just don't know... Please thank the Judge as well. I really appreciated his help as well as yours."
