"I enjoy the online CPE because it allows for me to stay up-to-date with pertinent accounting issues while studying on my own time. I can pause the sessions and resume at my convenience. I feel the CPE is highly relevant as a majority of the sessions have lecturers who are experts in their field. The online interface that NYSSCPA utilizes is user friendly and allows me to easily sort by topic."

IRC section 1202 only applies to stock in C corporations, and initially it did not receive a lot of attention. Since its enactment, though, it has undergone several changes. The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), however, reduced the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, making operating as a C corporation more attractive to investors.
