Individual Income Tax - Taxes, Credits, and Penalties  

CATEGORY: Taxation
  Online & Mobile
7 CPE Credits
Level: Basic

Taxpayers have the opportunity for significant savings if they take advantage of any tax credits for which they qualify; and they can avoid penalties if they timely calculate and pay their income tax liability. This course highlights many common tax credits such as the dependent care credit, the child tax credit and credit for other dependents, and education credits, and then analyzes the taxpayers who qualify for these credits. The course discusses other taxes, such as self-employment tax, to which a taxpayer may be subject, and where there are exceptions to the rules. The course also provides the relevant tax rates, income thresholds, and phaseout ranges that apply. Finally, it provides examples of how these credits, taxes, and payments are calculated by illustrating cases on the proper tax forms and schedules. This course has been updated for recent relevant tax law changes. This basic level course is most beneficial to professionals new to this subject area who may be at the staff or entry level in an organization, but also for a seasoned professional with limited exposure to this topic.
