Truman Team Earns Regional Win in Tax Case Competition


A team of Truman students was named as one of nine regional winners of Deloitte FanTAXtic, a student tax case study competition, and will advance to the national competition in January.

Fifty-four teams representing 39 colleges and universities participated in the virtual event, Oct. 30. Truman’s team was composed of senior Erynn Glaesemann, junior Mitchell Heberer and sophomores Lany Borella and Laura Haarmann, all from the School of Business.

The team demonstrated the ability to work collaboratively to solve a complex business case simulation and was also recognized for the quality of their overall presentation to a panel of virtual judges. In January, the Truman team will compete for nearly $50,000 in individual scholarships and institutional awards at the Deloitte FanTAXtic national competition.

Sponsored by Deloitte Tax LLP and supported by the Deloitte Foundation, Deloitte FanTAXtic is designed to educate and prepare the next generation of tax talent for a career in business and tax. The interactive program includes case simulation, role playing and presentations which provide students with insights and perspectives on challenges facing the profession today, future trends that may impact it tomorrow and the overall changing business tax marketplace. Deloitte Tax LLP professionals participate in the event and offer the students support and guidance throughout the competition.  

Truman’s team was supported by Stacey Kaden, associate professor of accounting, and Deloitte professionals Andrea Wodka and Kelly James.
