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

This course examines numerous issues that are of interest to middle-income households in order to minimize their tax burden. Retirement plans are discussed in depth, including employer retirement plans and IRAs, both traditional plans and Roth-type plans. Many tax credits are presented, such as the child tax credits, the dependent care credit, education credits, the adoption credit, and energy credits. Kiddie tax, additional Medicare tax, and the net investment income tax are discussed, and how middle-income households can manage these taxes. Selection of proper filing status is discussed. Tax-free items are presented and itemized deductions are discussed. Specific actions for taxpayers during high-income and low-income years are suggested, and a discussion of penalties and how to avoid them is included. As a basic level course, it is most beneficial to CPAs new to personal tax-saving strategies. However, this course may also benefit an experienced professional with limited exposure to such strategies.
