Training in all versions of MS-DOS are available along with installing and running programs under the MS-DOS operating system. My experience with MS-DOS began in 1981 with MS-DOS 1.0 through MS-DOS 6.2 and the illusive MS-DOS 7.0. Previously I used an operating system known as CP/M which resided in the machine's chipset versus on a disk.
My experience with Outlook covers Outlook Express beginning with the Windows 3.0 version through Windows 2000. My Outlook experience begins with Outlook 97 through Outlook 2007.

You will learn how to create and use a default signature containing pictures and HTML and how to attach or imbed files, use Outlook (or another email client) as your default email client and how to retrieve (cancel) previously sent email from the Enterprise versions using MS Exchange.
I will share my 32 tax seasons of expertise with you. I am a listed e-file provider on the IRS's web site. What business types can and cannot be filed on a FORM-1040 will be covered. Also which LLCs can and cannot be reported on a FORM-1065. Discussions will include Schedules A, B, C, D, E, F, SE and most numbered forms from the IRS. IRS requirements for helping someone else prepare their taxes and for becoming a paid tax preparer will be covered. You will not learn how to prepare a large tax return, but may just learn how to do your own.
