Quinlan wins regional Deloitte FanTAXtic competition

Quinlan accounting students are heading to Deloitte's national tax competition after their victory at regionals.

A Quinlan team was named as one of nine regional winners of Deloitte FanTAXtic, Deloitte’s student tax case study competition.

Nearly sixty teams representing more than 40 colleges and universities participated in the regional event on November 3-4, held at Deloitte offices across the U.S.

“I could not be prouder of this group,” says Kent Foutty, Quinlan's FanTaxtic team advisor and executive lecturer. “Not because they won, but because they worked hard, worked together, and represented Loyola in the best way possible.”

Team members are students Aidan Crehan, Julie Grembi, Nicholas Harazim, Theodora Lakic, and Andrew Newcomb.

Heading to nationals

In January 2018, the Quinlan team will compete for more than $50,000 in individual scholarships and institutional awards at the Deloitte FanTAXtic national competition taking place at Deloitte University, Deloitte’s national learning and leadership development center near Dallas, Texas.

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, 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.
