Varnum Tax Attorneys Featured in ICLE Webinar
The Institute for Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) recently released a webcast moderated by Varnum senior tax attorney Eric Nemeth and featuring Varnum tax attorney Katie Wilbur, as well as Tom Hillegonds of McShane & Bowie.
"Tax Research Concepts, Resources and Tools" is a 47-minute webcast designed to help tax practitioners efficiently navigate free and paid search tools in order to deliver the best results to clients. The video provides "real world tax research hypotheticals on LLC formation, employee classification, and uncapping issues."
The webcast is available on demand on the ICLE website. Among other things, the session provides information on how to:
- Distinguish binding precedent sources from persuasive authority sources
- Determine the tax implications of an LLC formation
- Search using paid sources like RIA Checkpoint
- Find answers using free, reliable online sources
- Employ Google searches effectively

"I am very appreciative of the mentors who have helped me in my career, and this was an opportunity to give something back to the legal community," Wilbur said. "It was actually kind of fun."
