Taxspeaker® (Formerly Jennings Seminars) was founded twenty-five years ago by Bob Jennings, a practicing CPA in Indiana. After several years of offering his own classes, Bob began speaking for a leading national seminar company in the mid-1990’s, and upon their sale to a foreign-owned Fortune 500 company, Bob struck out on his own in 2004 with Taxspeaker®. From the very beginning Bob believed that all speakers must still have a regular tax practice, including himself, and all courses should be taught from the point of view of the local firm practitioner. That rule still applies today, from the President through all speakers.
Today Taxspeaker® provides education to tax, legal and financial professionals in all 50 states, as well as several foreign countries. As the only continuing education company whose manuals ever won the coveted CPA Practice Advisor Reader’s Choice Award (2016), Taxspeaker® is known for its industry-leading manuals, expert and energetic speakers, and award-winning research and compliance checklists and guides.
