For the 2020 Testing Cycle, the Tax Law Institute [sponsored by its affiliate, US Tax Court Litigators.org] requested to partner with Ave Maria School of Law, located in Naples FL. The Ritz Carlton Naples, a Mediterranean Spa-like 5-star resort, was recommended as accommodations preferred by our guest CPA/EA bar candidates who hope to be "Admitted to Practice before the US Tax Court". The following was taken from an online promotion of the Ritz Carlton Naples -- "Make yourself at home in air-conditioned rooms featuring iPod docking stations and minibars. Your pillowtop bed comes with down comforters and Egyptian cotton sheets. Rooms have private furnished balconies. 42-inch LCD televisions with premium TV channels provide entertainment, with wired and wireless Internet access available for a surcharge. Private bathrooms with shower/tub combinations feature designer toiletries and hair dryers. Relax at the full-service spa, where you can enjoy massages, body treatments, and facials. You're sure to appreciate the recreational amenities, which include 2 outdoor swimming pools, outdoor tennis courts, and a 24-hour health club."  Learn more...
