Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Fast Forward Academy is known not only for preparing students for challenging EA, CPA, and RTRP exams, but it is also recognized for helping tax professionals adapt to changes in the industry. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), signed into law in 2010, affects those involved in the tax industry, and so, Fast Forward Academy has developed a webinar to prepare professionals for the many changes rolling out.
The PPACA is monumentous and will likely affect every person and institution in the United States. Therefore, it is vital that tax professionals understand the implications of the Act.
Both aspiring or practicing EAs and both practicing CPAs and those studying for the CPA exam are welcome to purchase this webinar for only $99. There are five dates to choose from, with live webinars taking place May 21, July 25, September 25, December 10, and January 7, 2014. All webinars will take place from 2:00PM–5:00PM (Eastern Standard Time).
The webinar, which counts as 3 hours of other federal tax credits, is led by Mark Ribas, CPA, Pennsylvania Tax Institutes, Inc. President, retired IRS agent and industry expert. During the 150 minute webinar, Ribas will discuss how the PPACA imposes healthcare-related requirements on health plans, health insurers, employers and individuals and the various implications for tax professionals (since the act imposes tax credits for compliance and tax penalties for non-compliance).
Fast Forward President, Matt McBride, says that it is necessary for all tax professionals in the United States to be familiar with the PPACA. “This Act [PPACA] will affect practically every U.S. citizen and institution; therefore, it’s critical that tax professionals thoroughly understand its implications. Fast Forward Academy is pleased to work with Mark Ribas to offer this informative webinar to add to its repertoire of tax education offerings.”
Specific topics being covered during the webinar include Overview of PPACA Provisions, Personal Tax Changes and Employer Tax Changes.
