About Latino Tax Fest

The Tax Fest was first introduced by Latino Tax Pro in 2014, marking our entry into bilingual conventions. With a history of delivering high-quality bilingual training, we proudly stand as one of the pioneers in the tax industry, acknowledged with a partnership from the IRS.


We are a bilingual team with over 40 years of experience in the tax industry serving the multi-cultural taxpayers of America. All of our education is based on real-life experiences that you will encounter as a Tax Professional. Our courses are IRS, NASBA, and CTEC-approved.


One of our main goals has been to make learning fun in the tax industry! Given the annual changes, it’s important to seek knowledge from reliable sources to assist taxpayers in accurately filing their returns.


Don’t do it alone!  Many attendees have shared that they initially attended The Tax Fest alone but left with a newfound network of connections. Our community functions like a family, ensuring you’ll always find someone with similar experiences ready to connect with you.


Every attendee is actively pursuing education to enhance their business growth. At The Tax Fest, discover new solutions to optimize your workflow at our Marketplace, where exhibitors are eager to assist you!


The beginning
Latino Tax Professionals Association Founded by Carlos C. Lopez, EA

In 1986, Carlos Lopez became an Enrolled Agent to start his career. In 1999, he spent the next 7 years training his own bilingual staff and opening multiple tax offices. A pivotal moment arose when an IRS district manager asked Mr. Lopez to establish a Spanish-speaking organization in California, leading to the creation of the Latino Tax Professionals Association and opening up his training courses to the public. 

2014 - 2015
Welcome to the community!
First Annual Latino Tax Fest

The first annual convention was held at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, attracting 400 attendees and hosting 20 exhibitors. Our dedicated team organized this modest event committed to growth. We made unforgettable memories and finally met many people we had only talked to on the phone.

The second annual convention returned to the Westgate in 2015 with just under 1,000 attendees. We quickly knew it was time to find the next location to hold our growing event.

2016 - 2017
Moving to a new location
Rio Hotel & Casino

The third Tax Fest took place at a new venue in Las Vegas, NV, chosen to accommodate our growing number of participants. In 2016, we welcomed 1,400 attendees and hosted nearly 70 exhibitors.

This began our famous pool party, providing attendees with an enjoyable mixer to unwind after a full day of learning. 

In 2017, for our fourth convention, we were just 100 away from hitting our goal of 2,000 attendees! We stayed motivated for the next year to have an even bigger and better event.

2018 - 2019
Let's keep growing!
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino

In 2018, we achieved our goal with an impressive turnout of 2,500 attendees and 98 exhibitors! The MGM Grand Hotel & Casino provided us the opportunity to expand our offerings, allowing for more breakout sessions, a spacious exhibit hall, and the hosting of two large main rooms for English and Spanish presentations.

The pool party was a tremendous success! We extended to two pool areas, offering attendees a refreshing dip to cool off from the full days of learning.

Then, during our Sixth Annual Tax Fest, we increased the number of attendees to 2,800.

2020 - 2021
The pandemic
Virtual Tax Fest

In the face of uncertainty during the pandemic, we quickly shifted gears, introducing the first-ever Latino Tax Fest as an interactive virtual event. Attendees embraced the challenge, livestreaming sessions and engaging with one another from the safety of their homes.

The virtual platform hosted a steady 1,000 to 1,500 participants, further solidifying the community we've cultivated around a shared appreciation for knowledge!

The show goes on!
Welcome Back to Vegas

After careful planning, we safely returned to our regular in-person events! Back for another wonderful year with the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. To accommodate attendees who enjoyed learning from home, we kept our virtual option as well. This would be our first-ever large hybrid event! We had a total of 2,525 attendees in person, and 315  joined us virtually.
