Also, for extra practice at the end of each FIT textbook chapter there are multiple choice questions, exercises and review questions. The answers to these items are contained in the FIT Study Guide. In each set of lecture notes, we recommend several for you to do. (c) Use FIT and the Act as a reference to clarify your understanding of the law. You are only responsible for what is in the Lecture Notes and Problem Sets. There is much more in the Act and in the FIT textbook than what we cover in this course.
If you have questions, please ask them in class or post them on the Model forum. But before you do that, please try to look the answer up for yourself. Because tax law is constantly changing and is very complex, one of the many skills needed for a career in taxation (or any accounting discipline) is the ability to do research. So for questions related to the content of the course, please try looking for answers to your questions in the lecture notes, the codebook and the Act first.
By the same token, for administrative questions please try looking for answers in this course outline first. The course materials provide you with answers to most of the frequently asked questions. There is an Administrative Forum at the top of the Model website and a separate forum accompanying each Lecture where the Lecture Recording is. The Group Forum for Administrative Matters and the individual lecture forums must each be subscribed to individually in order to automatically receive emails of posts to the forums.

Joanne Mage ([email protected] Ca) Tax Course Coordinator 3 Learning Outcomes and Professional Behavior Students can attend any section that they wish. Notes and problem material have been provided to help you with your learning. As future professionals you are expected to act like professionals.
In terms of expected behavior in class you should: Prepare in advance for each lecture. The more prepared you are, in advance, the more you will get out of a lecture and it is the only way to get full participation marks; Arrive on time for each on-campus class (and for exams) since entering late can disrupt others; Actively listen and ask and answer questions during class; Avoid disruptive behavior like talking in class, checking emails, sending texts, talking on the phone, et cetera since this behavior can disturb your fellow classmates and your course director.
If you need to have a conversation, send an email, text or make a phone call (and if you cannot wait until break or after lass) then quietly leave the classroom to do so and return to class when finished (since this is less disruptive); Turn your cell phone off and put it away during class and exams; and For all assignments and exams, read and follow the directions and fully comply with Work’s Academic Honesty Policy. See “1 0 Important York Policies” (below) for more information on Academic Honesty.
Attend the entire class; If you need to leave early, be polite and tell the instructor ahead of time and try to leave at the break to minimize disruption and you should review the audio tape of the class or try to attend the second Alfa of another section’s class to avoid missing important information. You learned the basics of many of the rules we cover in this course in ADAMS 3520; this course will help you refresh that knowledge, learn the finer details (including how to read the rules in the Act! ) and apply the rules to more complex problem material involving transactions and planning situations.
