Session-4: ITEMIZED DEDUCTION UPDATES - WITH EXAMPLES & CASE STUDIES

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 session 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? 

Session-5: SECTION 199A UPDATE

The qualified business income (QBI) deduction under Sec. 199A brought issues that ranged from learning and understanding the new Code section to simply making sure the tax software was calculating the deduction correctly. IRC 199A, the new 20% of qualified business income deduction, is the best new tax deduction from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The deduction has a lot of complexities to it, and without proper knowledge of how the deduction works, taxpayers can see large penalties and taxes due. 

The IRS has processed its final regulations on IRC 199A, so practitioners now have more clarity on the different intricacies for the deduction. These create amazing tax opportunities for business owners to increase their deductions to continue to save on their taxes.

This session will look at all the different scenarios involved when calculating the IRC 199A deduction. It will also look at different ways practitioners and taxpayers can protect themselves from some of the more grey areas involved with the 199A deduction. What new info, opportunities, and requirements) do these new forms and guidance throw at our feet? What does it mean for tax returns claiming QBID? Take our all-new, fresh look CPE webinar and learn to command the topic.

Paying for educational expenses isn’t easy. At tax time, there are certain educational tax credits that can help offset some higher education costs by lowering the tax liability of households with eligible students. There are even some circumstances where one may be eligible for a tax refund.

If your clients paid for education expenses in the last year, you may be able to save money on their taxes by claiming the American opportunity credit or lifetime learning credit, or opting for the the tuition and fees deduction. The American opportunity credit is generally the most valuable, if they qualify. You clients can claim these education tax credits and deductions even if you paid with a student loan. Parents can take advantage, too, so long as they don't choose a married filing separately status. Here's what to know about each option.

My core business is financial advisory and tax compliments this nicely. I recently became an EA and have filed returns the last three years through a business relationship with a friend. This presentation was excellent for people like me who predominantly file personal returns only. The slide decks are useful reference tools I will revisit and the presenters were excellent. Top notch! Thank you
