money house on grassMTA is offering both in-person and online Board of Review training this February 

That’s right and we’re hosting two classes this year, one approved by the State Tax Commission to satisfy the P.A. 660 training mandate AND one for those who’ve already met the requirements for the two-year cycle. We’ll take you in-depth on common trouble spots, hot topics and other issues encountered by boards of review. You’ll walk away with critical insights, even if you’ve been on the board of review for years!
