Course Description

Being a Tax Professionals or CPA or Financial Advisor or any finance professional you would have been definitely ask this question Is this deductible?

Because every taxpayer wondered if you can itemize deductions on your tax return? Actually, they wondered what, exactly, itemizing means? They don't even know that Itemized deductions comprised of various types of certain expenses that you incur throughout the year (things that are—surprise, surprise—“tax-deductible”). If the total amount of these expenses is greater than the standard deduction amount, you should itemize instead of taking the standard deduction and may have a reduce tax liability.

When you’re filling out federal tax return this year, you’ll be asked to either calculate your itemized deductions or to take the standard deduction—an amount predefined by the IRS and based upon your filing status (e.g., single or married filing jointly). If you don’t qualify to itemize deductions, you will choose the standard deduction.

With the change in the tax law, and other previously confusing guidance from Congress and the IRS, clients often ask, can I deduct that? This CPE webinar will look at the most common deductions clients ask about and how to properly determine, is that deductible and give your client or colleague or friend the best advice? This is latest webinar is updated after the pandemic, covering the latest updates.
