Do not waste your time focusing your attention on the entire FRE. You must learn which rules among the many found in the FRE are applicable to Tax Court practice and how and when to use them. Tax Evidence is tricky so it must be presented in such a way so that the relationships between these rules are made clear. This is a course of study in which one should proceed cautiously and carefully. If you do not learn how to correctly read a Rule then you could be taken down a rabbit hole of legal reasoning and do poorly on the exam.

You must master these Tax Court Rules and commit them to memory. You do not want to waste time looking them up. We will show you how they are logical and straight-forward and often string together. If you master these rules, you will gain a better understanding of Evidence and the Substantive Tax Law that give rise to Tax Court jurisdiction and more.
Even though Legal Ethics is worth just 10% of the overall grade, applicants fail this section because they don't take the time to truly learn the rules and their relationship to each other. What you may assume to be true about what a lawyer (in our case, a United States Tax Court Practitioner) is allowed to do and not do is going to be most likely incorrect. These are very strict rules that came about after Watergate when the country learned that even the nation's top legal officer was in fact not above reproach. Quick tip. You must learn these rules in the order in which they are presented. Do not make the mistake of glossing over them individually. In the end, you could flunk the section and the exam.
The Substantive Tax Law section is known to be the most problematic of all the exam parts. It is the part most EAs who think they know taxes usually fail. One thing for sure, it is truly comprehensive, covering all sorts of tax issues. It is also worth 40% of your overall grade. You must know Federal Individual Income Taxation, Corporate Tax and Estates and Trusts. We haven't seen much on partnership taxation over the last two testing cycles, but you should know about partnerships as well, so we teach a review course. You must also have read all important cases and opinions dating back to the administration of the prior exam. Further, you must have a thorough understanding of Tax Court jurisdiction, Statutory Notice of Deficiency and the Petition for Redetermination. And there's more...
Even though you've worked in taxes for a long time, you would be surprised to discover how much you don't know. This course may enlighten you. Without a thorough understanding of Individual Taxation you have no hope of passing the exam. Spend the time and take this course. You'll be glad you did.

Unless the focus of your practice has been on the partnership and corporate domain, it is imperative that you take this course. Partnership and Corporate tax questions appear on the exam (though mostly corporate questions were the only ones that appeared over the last two testing cycles) and they're usually worth 8-10 points. Answering them correctly can make the difference as to whether or not you pass the Substantive Tax Law section.

"Learning from a former U.S. Tax Court judge was amazing. The insight he provided was priceless. Not only did I feel that I got my money's worth... I almost felt that I hadn't paid enough for all that I learned."
"These folks are masters at teaching Tax Evidence. They taught me how to use the Federal Rules of Evidence to understand how cases are decided. Not only did I get a handle on the FRE but I used what I leaned to approach the other tested courses with confidence."
