Tax professionals will be bombarded with questions from clients over the coming weeks. You need to start preparing NOW. This webinar will give provide a summary of the proposed changes and an objective analysis of the impact on clients and the profession.

  • Be aware of many of the adjustments to income which will no longer be allowed including Moving Expenses and Alimony
  • Understand that it will be necessary to occupy a principal residence for 5 out of the last 8 years in order to exclude a gain on sale of a principal residence and other changes to Section 121

  • Be aware of the many credits both personal and business that may be repealed or modified
  • Be aware of the significant increase of expensing under code section 179 and the lowering of taxes generally on business income
  • Be in a position to advise clients how the Tax Cuts and Job Act could possibly affect them.

NOTE: The voluntary IRS Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) requires that CE Sponsors collect PTINs from IRS professionals who wish to receive IRS credit. IRS PTIN holders (including Enrolled Agents) should enter their IRS PTIN into Checkpoint Learning so that course completions can be reported to the IRS. You do not need to enter your PTIN for each course you take; you only need to add it once. If you have any questions on how to do this, please contact us 800-231-1860.
