NEW YORK, September 24, 2015 – Thomson Reuters has released its Checkpoint Learning 2015 Tax Update program, which helps tax professionals and accounting firms educate their clients, prospects and client service teams on the latest developments in the field.

The newest addition to the company’s Checkpoint Learning program, the 2015 Tax Update can be used as both an informational and marketing tool to attract prospects and retain clients, allowing firms to showcase their expertise in areas such as the Internal Revenue Service Data Book, 2014, the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) program, recent health care reform including a detailed look at Form 1095, and differentiating between employees and independent contractors. It also satisfies the requirements for continuing professional education (CPE) credits for up to 25 individuals, with an opportunity to purchase additional CPE certificates if necessary.

“Highly customizable for various firm stakeholders, the program gives tax professionals the timely and relevant insights they need to better understand tax planning and compliance issues,” said Ken Koskay, senior vice president of Learning Solutions with the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters, as well as a CPA and CFP. “Accounting firms can also use the program to provide CPE-accredited training for clients and prospects, as well as their client-facing staff, creating potential new revenue streams or value-added services for existing clients.”

Checkpoint Learning 2015 Tax Update features a video presentation by national tax speaker, John Stevko, CPA, a regular Checkpoint Learning contributor and expert on tax update and health care reform issues. The program also includes an accompanying PowerPoint presentation and a leader manual with supplementary material on all topics and discussion questions for the training session.
