TAX EXPERTS TO CONVERGE ON 'SUPER SEMINARS' Business journalists who wish to significantly enhance their
abilities to provide accurate, interesting, helpful tax information and advice to their audiences are invited to attend all or any portion of three "Super Tax Seminars" sponsored by the California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA).

Business editors, reporters and columnists are invited to join in this exchange of information at any point. The Super Seminars are scheduled May 11-13 in Las Vegas, May 28-30 in Reno, and June 23-25 in San Diego. For complete details including session descriptions, presenter biographies and registration information, call CSEA and request the Super Seminar catalog. Media registration is complimentary. CSEA will facilitate any arrangements necessary to make a visit or interview worthwhile from a business news perspective. From flat tax to surtax, the continuing federal flurry over tax policy and tax packages will be the subject of lively and informal expert debate when hundred of tax professionals from around the nation converge on this year's Super Tax Seminars. "These are the people who are going to be helping taxpayers cope with whatever the government finally comes up with," said Jack Robishaw, EA, president of the California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA). "They're going to have very strong feelings about all the proposals flying around. "Many tax professionals would probably say that the best thing the government could do for the taxpayer," Robishaw remarked, "is to leave bad enough alone. More and more complicated 'tax reform' laws just make matters worse -- significantly worse -- for taxpayers." This is the tenth year that CSEA has presented the nationally respected Super Seminars. The events are among the country's largest gatherings of tax experts. A total of more than 2,500 Enrolled Agents and other tax practitioners from coast to coast will attend. Enrolled Agents (EAs) are individuals who advise and assist their clients -- from consumers to corporations -- in all matters of taxation. "Enrolled" simply means they are licensed by the federal government. "Agent" means they are authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer at any level of the IRS. The purpose of the Super Seminars is to provide tax professionals with the highly technical information necessary to serve the best interests of the clients they represent. This year's schedule offers 30 different educational sessions during the three-day run of each Super Seminar. The continuing education classes include comprehensive updates on topics from estate planning to audits, interest deductions to capital gains. A session titled "Living Trusts: Snake Oil of the 90s?" examines the tax ramifications of that currently popular financial arrangement. "Weird Rentals" covers the odd situations that sometimes arise with vacation home rentals, shared homes and other special circumstances. Super Seminar keynote speaker Danny Santucci, J.D., a respected expert on tax and finance, will offer important advice. "Most people labor for 40 years and have nothing to show for it," Santucci said. "Labor develops income but income doesn't develop wealth because we spend it. "We should be using income to acquire assets," Santucci explained. "Only with assets and careful tax planning can we develop financial security." The Super Seminars are scheduled May 11-13 at the Stardust in Las Vegas, May 28-30 at Bally's in Reno, and June 23-25 at the Red Lion Hotel in San Diego. -0- 4/13/92 /CONTACT: Bill Sprague or Will Carnegie, both of California Society of Enrolled Agents, 800-777-2732 or 916-366-6646/ CO: California Society of Enrolled Agents ST: California IN: SU:
