z The class is conducted almost entirely in the Oncourse environment. Because in-person classes are not held, it is absolutely imperative that you read all of the assignments and read them carefully (including this syllabus). Following instructions is critical to success in this course. Although no classes are held, you must come to campus on several occasions. These include visits to: z Take the examination , which will be scheduled for a Saturday morning. z Locate tax research materials in the main university library . (This allows you to see that the materials you will be researching actually exist in print and not just in cyberspace.) z Turn in hard copies of some written assignments to the secretary (Jackie Thompson). Because virtually all students are also taking the introductory tax course, we suggest that you hand them in while you are on campus attending that course. If a hardship exists, please send me an email.
