BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Center for Management Development (CMD) in the University at Buffalo School of Management will offer a non-credit tax course, "Critical Tax Issues for Financial and Legal Professionals," beginning Oct. 23.

The course will review core tax concepts, including those contained in the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001. The course is geared toward CPAs, attorneys, controllers, CFOs, financial advisors and other professionals who do not regularly concentrate on tax matters.

The course will be held on eight consecutive Tuesdays, Oct. 23 through Dec. 11, from 8-10:40 a.m. in UB's Jacobs Executive Development Center, 672 Delaware Ave. The cost for the course is $420, which includes reading materials. Registration must be completed no later than Oct. 19.

Each week of the course will focus on a different critical tax issue, such as e-commerce/multi-state tax issues, pass-through entities, New York State tax incentives, retirement plans, and estate and gift taxation. Course instructors will include professionals from the local business community and faculty members from the UB School of Management.

The course can be counted as an elective for UB's Graduate Tax Certificate Program. Participants who complete the course will earn 24 Continuing Professional Education credits and 24 Continuing Legal Education Board credits.
