2020 Louisiana Tax Conference

December 14-15 • In-Person & Online

By far, LCPA’s biggest CPE event of the year — and the largest annual gathering of CPAs in the state — this conference updates Louisiana tax practitioners and attorneys on federal and state tax law changes. Tax practitioners are often the primary consultant for businesses on all kinds of buying decisions, from what software to use, to what vehicles to purchase, and much more. So, whether you’re looking for new customers or a steady referral source (or both!), this is a must-attend event.
