De Filipps University Tracks

De Filipps U offers resources that follow two primary tracks ... These tracks simply provide a means for classification and grouping of our resources.

  • Our Dealership Track consists of resources that focus on tax issues that affect automobile dealerships.
  • Our LIFO Track consists of resources that apply to the Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) inventory method of accounting.

A third track ... our General Business Applications Track ... consists of resources that cover general tax issues applicable to most businesses. This track addresses topics such as the new Tangibles Regulations and changes in methods of accounting / Form 3115 preparation.
