Gear Up Seminar and Self-Study Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: What You Need to Know
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act represents the largest change in tax law since the big Tax Reform Act of 1986. This seminar will cover all the important details that tax professionals need in order to advise clients how they will be affected by this massive tax act. The legislation is quite complicated, but it will all be explained in plain English with many examples to make it understandable. The manual contains over 50 chapters covering all the changes that affect individuals as well as businesses. For individuals, the seminar covers new tax rates and brackets, new standard deductions, new credits, big changes on Schedule A and much more. For business, the seminar covers the new 20% Qualified Business Income Deduction, new limitations on business losses and interest expense, restrictions on deducting certain expenses as well as the big changes in depreciation. For all businesses, it has become necessary to revisit the choice of entity. The course shows how this should be tackled with examples that offer guidance to tax professionals. Finally, the course also touches on changes in the areas of estate taxes and taxation of foreign income. As a bonus, the seminar will cover more recent tax legislation such as the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 and the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018.

Webinars (view more...) New Interest Expense Limitations: To Deduct or Not to Deduct?
Enacted on December 22, 2017, legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was hailed as the largest major tax reform in over three decades. The TCJA completely revised the rules in which businesses (corporations and partnerships) must follow in deducting interest expense by establishing a new interest expense regime filled with taxable income limitations, new interest expense and income definitions, unique carryover provisions, complex partnership applicability and consolidated group implications. This webinar will cover key topics for practitioners and taxpayers, alike, such as the computation of adjusted taxable income, Notice 2018-28, and various other provisions.

Mortgage Interest, State and Local Income and Property Tax, and Casualty Losses: Picking Up the Pieces After Tax Reform
It's true that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has restricted some of these deductions but it's not as bad as it first seemed. Even the IRS has given guidance pointing out the Home Equity Loans may still be deductible. But it is necessary that we understand how things have changed and the new limitations for Mortgage Interest, State and Local Taxes, and Casualty Losses. These will all be explained in detail at this 2-hour webinar. In addition, we will identify some of these items which may well be allowed elsewhere on a tax return. We will also cover the important differences between a personal casualty loss and a Presidentially declared disaster.

Online courses (view more...) 49 Things Individuals and Small Business Owners Need to Know About the New Tax Law
This course discusses 49 provisions that individuals and small business owners need to know. The TCJA includes many tax changes, most of which were expected because they were included in earlier legislative proposals. However, some were unexpected — and some expected changes did not make the final cut. The changes that affect individuals are effective for 2018-2025 unless otherwise indicated. After 2025, the pre-TCJA rules are scheduled to come back into force unless otherwise indicated.

International Taxes under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
International Tax has always presented challenges due to its technical complexity. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) further added to those challenges. There are significant changes to this area as well as modifications to long standing international tax concepts. This program provides an overview of the main international tax provisions contained within the TCJA. Tax practitioners will benefit from the discussion of all these provisions, including the new corporate tax deduction for foreign source dividends, the new tax on global intangible "low-taxed" income, the new deduction for foreign derived intangible income and the new tax on base erosion payments, i.e. the BEAT. There is also a discussion of the long-standing international provisions that were modified, such as the number of foreign tax credit baskets, the changes to the definition of "U.S. shareholder" and its impact on controlled foreign corporations. And in making the transition in international tax from a "credit" based system to a "participation exemption", the transition tax affecting deferred foreign income is also discussed. Seasoned international tax practitioners as well as those practitioners with a "need-to-know" international tax, will find program useful as well as interesting.

Qualified Business Income Deduction
The 2017 Tax Act is a very complex piece of legislation. The law was clearly intended to cut taxes and create jobs, but it pursues these goals in a variety of remarkably complicated ways. And no new provision is more emblematic of the Act ... cutting taxes and promoting jobs in a stunningly convoluted way ... than the extremely favorable new deduction called the Qualified Business Income Deduction which is contained in Internal Revenue Code Section 199A. This course is entirely devoted to the new Qualified Business Income Deduction.
