Excellent intro to T2s.

I consider myself fairly experienced in completing basic corporate income tax returns but I felt that I needed a refresher. I found the course very useful for that; I especially enjoyed when the speakers discussed errors that they commonly see in their practices. The T2 checklist was also very useful.
