Form 471 Training Site Available

January 14, 2015

The FY 2015 Form 471 application filing window opens today at noon, and as I’ve mentioned previously, there is anentirely new Form 471 — both in terms of content but also format.  Yesterday USAC made available at training site that mirrors the actual Form 471 and I encourage you to use this site to play around and see what’s new before you begin your actual Form 471.  Dummy data is listed below that should be used in the training site.

I, myself, am becoming familiar with the new online Form 471 and intend to schedule a Form 471 webinar in the coming weeks to walk you through it step-by-step.
