General Information

IRS Approved Continuing Education Provider logoThe Fifty-Fourth Annual Clemson University Income Tax Course is a two day-long course that will be offered individually in Florence, Spartanburg, Mt. Pleasant, Columbia, Anderson, and Charleston, during November and December 2015.

The course will feature federal and state income tax topics of current interest to tax practitioners. Instructors are Ronny Burkett, C.P.A., S. Lynn Martin, C.P.A., and key tax professionals from the South Carolina Department of Revenue.


Due to limited space and advanced purchase of course materials, ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS A MUST.  Please register online as soon as possible so that plans can be made for the luncheons and adequate space can be assured for all who desire to attend.  Late registrants may not be accepted at some locations.

  • $295 for those registering online.
  • $315 for those registering by mail.
  • $325 for walk-ins if space is available.

The fee covers the cost of two-day intensive instruction, publications, two luncheons, refreshments during breaks and meeting facilities. 

Publications Included With This Program:

  • 2015 Income Tax Workbook and CD
  • RIA Federal Tax Handbook
  • South Carolina Department of Revenue Tax Manual

(Above materials included in the registration fee.) The retail value of this material is more than $150.

Taxpayer Advocate Service Representatives from the IRS will be available on the second day of each workshop to hear specific case problems. (For many of you, this feature alone can offset the cost of the workshop.) The SC DOR Taxpayer Advocate will only be at the Columbia location.

Meals, Refreshments and Facilities

A noon meal is included on both days of the workshop.  Refreshments are provided during breaks. Most facilities have problems maintaining a uniform temperature. For your comfort, we suggest you DRESS IN LAYERS.

Seating Capacity and Waiting List Policy

Safety is a primary concern in determining the seating capacity of each venue. Given that we expect to sell out each venue you are encouraged to register early. In the event some participants cancel their registration at the last minute, we maintain a waiting list for individuals that wish to be notified of an open seat. The waiting list works on a first-come first-serve basis.
