The Tax Law Institute provides unparalleled support to those who are preparing for the U.S. Tax Court NonAttorney Examination. Instructors include experienced Tax Court judges, law professors, certified public accountants, and former IRS enrolled agents. Participants have ample opportunity to practice and receive invaluable feedback that hones their exam writing skills.

The Tax Law Institute program focuses preparation on the important issues and exam-taking tips that will boost the likelihood of passing the examination the first time and at the same time understanding the rules, procedures, and tax code from the perspective of a practicing U.S. Tax Court litigator.

I unreservedly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about becoming a U.S. Tax Court practitioner without the time and expense of earning a law degree

Let's face it, Tax Court Rules of Practice and Procedure, Federal Rules of Evidence and the Model Rules of Professional Conduct on their own don't make for exciting reading; in fact it can be tedious reading but it is necessary reading. I tried another study program that simply wasn't working for me. Then, I discovered TLI and became encouraged. After a couple of sessions it was quite clear how superior their approach is. They have breathed new life into these topics for me and now my comprehension is much improved along with a new excitement to discover more.

I would recommend Tax Law Institute (TLI) for those seeking a top-flight preparation course for the United States Tax Court Practitioner Exam. I am not aware of another program which can offer an instructional cadre of which includes an Ivy League law professor, US Tax Court judges, several 25+ yr tax practitioners [sic] (and USTC admitted), and recognized authors within the legal profession, as instructors and mentors.

Highly recommend this program to those preparing for the U.S. Tax Court Bar Exam.

Preparation for the U.S. Tax Court nonattorney examination is a challenge, but the Tax Law Institute provides the preparation necessary to tackle it with confidence. The Tax Law Institute offers invaluable guidance not only on content like the Federal Rules of Evidence but also on the practical aspects of passing the exam.

Instructors are top experts in tax law including a former U.S. Tax Court judge. They offer important insights into how the Court actually works, which helps put the rules, practices, and procedures in context. The program also provides step-by-step guidance leading to an intensive six-day preparation conference just before the exam in Washington, DC.

I unreservedly recommend the program to anyone who is serious about being a U.S. Tax Court litigator.

So, you're a CPA or an EA and you're [sic] looking for a review course for the United States Tax Court [sic] Nonattorney Exam, well [sic] have I got a review course for you!

Check out the Tax Law Institute review course. Your instructors are attorneys, tax court judges, and legal authors.

Everyone wants you to succeed and be successful. During lectures they encourage people to ask questions and actually require individuals read the questions and then formulate an answer which is discussed between all of the participants.

You are told what to read and how [sic] to prepare for each class, which by the way is all done via telephone conferencing making it very convenient to attend.

The Program [sic] Administrator, Mr. Stuart, answers emails very promptly and makes enrollment quick and easy.

The tuition is in line with all of the other review courses out there, but they offer a one-week intensive review in Washington D.C. prior to the actual exam.

I feel I am being well prepared for the exam.


Enroll now and see you in November 2020.

Kurt Fredricks, EA, and one happy student!
