Credits and Incentives Programs

Credits & Incentives School

Hilton DFW Lakes 
Grapevine, Texas  
August 5 - 9, 2019

There’s something new to discover at IPT’s Credits & Incentives School!

In order to better suit the educational needs of attendees, IPT’s Credits & Incentives School will be split into two components - Basic and Advanced.  The Basic course will be held August 5 – 7, and covers the fundamentals of discretionary and statutory incentives, basic compliance, and site selection. One hour of IPT ethics is also included in this portion of the school.  The Basic component of the school concludes on Wednesday, August 7, with a written exam.  

The Advanced component of the school immediately follows the Basic course and begins mid-day on August 7, and utilizes a case study, which requires attendees to work in groups, culminating with a graded team presentation on Friday, August 9.  Topics covered in this portion of the school include tax credit monetization; compliance; TIFs; PILOTs; and new market tax credits.  

The case study offers participants the opportunity to practice skills learned throughout the week, including the topics presented in the Basic component, and then prepare a presentation regarding available incentives and community support at a mock hearing. Each group of registrants will be assigned a competing jurisdiction to represent.

This new structure allows more flexibility for attendees; providing them the opportunity to take only the Basic course, or attend the entire school within the span of one week.  Although it is highly recommended to attend the entire school, the Basic course is a great fit for professionals in other tax disciplines, who can benefit from learning more about the fundamentals of credits & incentives concepts and theories at an introductory level.
