Course Description

Course Description

The earned-income credit (EIC) is a refundable tax credit used to supplement the wages of low-income workers and help offset the effect of Social Security taxes. The earned-income credit (EIC) is a refundable tax credit that helps certain U.S. taxpayers with low earnings by reducing the amount of tax owed on a dollar-for-dollar basis. Taxpayers may be eligible for refunds if their tax credit exceeds their tax liability for the year

Tax returns filed by tax preparers that include the earned income tax credit (EIC), a refundable income tax credit for working individuals and families whose earnings are under a certain income threshold, are commonly audited by the IRS and subject to additional due diligence requirements. To avoid being penalized by the IRS, it’s important to correctly calculate and claim this credit.

In this online CE webinar, our speaker Jason Dinesen will cover EIC rules, common errors made in calculating and claiming the credit, consequences of disallowance by the IRS, and the requirements imposed on tax preparers for EIC due diligence.

In this online Tax CPE/CE webinar following major topics are covered:
