Course Description

When you’re filling out a 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 webinar will go into depth, beyond the basics, on itemized deductions.

The following topics will be covered in detail:

  • medical expenses: is it deductible or not?
  • Mortgage interest issues including interest-tracing rules,
  • dealing with home equity lines of credit,
  • dealing with mortgages that are over the thresholds,
  • investment interest,
  • charitable contributions,
  • casualty losses,
  • miscellaneous deductions.

This online CPE webinar covers following key topics:

  • Medical expenses: what's deductible and what's not?
  • Medical expenses: dealing with capital improvements
  • Interest expenses: Tax Cut and Jobs Act changes
  • Interest expenses: dealing with loans above the TCJA limits
  • Interest expenses: dealing with home equity lines of credit
  • Interest expenses: interest tracing
  • Dealing with investment interest
  • Charitable contribution issues: beyond the basics -AGI limits, non-cash contribution reporting
