Master of Taxation

5 Reasons to Choose WSU's Master of Taxation Program.

1.  Our program gives you the tools you need to answer difficult questions

Weber State University Master of Taxation (MTax) students benefit from the in-depth study of the tax law applicable to individuals, partnerships, corporation, and S corporations.  Students also learn tax research and communication techniques that enhance their ability to find answers to difficult tax questions—a skill that employers value significantly.  Moreover, the program offers electives covering other specific areas of taxation including international taxation, real estate taxation, state and local taxation, exempt organizations, mergers and acquisitions, retirement plans and employee benefits.  Our program is accredited by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).  In most cases, graduates from our MTax program meet the educational requirements to sit for the CPA exam in Utah.

2.  It's affordable

Relative to the significant costs of most other MTax programs around the country, Weber State’s MTax program is much more affordable.  In addition, we are currently able to waive out-of-state tuition for non-Utah residents.  For more information relating to tuition for the MTax program please click here.
