Education for our Clients
At JAK we are committed to educating our clients and providing resources for learning. One way we do this is by offering various educational opportunities throughout the year.
Get perspective from seasoned CPAs.
Sometimes a tax law development may require you to significantly change the way you do business. To help you understand how your business may be impacted, we can present a private educational seminar for you and your staff.

Don’t Be A Burden

- What’s included in an estate
- Why you should have an estate plan
- How your will is involved
- Gifting rules and options
- How trusts are involved
- Tax requirements
- and more…
