“An excellent introductory and interactive course that covers the basic elements of U.S. sales and use tax, while at the same time challenges the attendee with complex legal concepts that may be pursued further in the course materials. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking an introductory to intermediate course in U.S. state sales and use tax.” – Douglas McCall, TELUS
