Course Description

Course Description

Form 1040 is the standard Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form that individual taxpayers use to file their annual income tax returns. 

The form contains sections that require taxpayers to disclose their taxable income for the year to determine whether additional taxes are owed or whether the filer will receive a tax refund.

Tax credits and deductions can change the amount of tax you owe so you pay less. Credits can reduce the amount of tax you owe. Deductions can reduce the amount of your income before you calculate the tax you owe. A taxpayer can claim itemized deductions as an alternative to taking the standard deduction if this option provides greater savings. 

Dividends are income earned by investing in stocks, mutual funds, or exchange-traded funds, and they are included in your tax return on Schedule B, Form 1040. Capital gains are the amount an asset increases in value between when it is purchased and when it is sold and they are included in your tax return on Schedule D, Form 1040. The U.S. tax code gives similar treatment to dividends and short-term capital gains, and qualified dividends and long-term capital gains, respectively. IRS Schedule B is a tax schedule that helps American taxpayers compute income tax due on interest and dividends earned. IRS Schedule D is a tax schedule that helps taxpayers compute income tax due on capital gains.

Why file Form 1099 and Form W-2? It’s the law – and the IRS is increasing enforcement in this area. Who must issue 1099? Any business – regardless of its structure (sole proprietor, corporation, etc.) that makes "reportable transactions" during the year is required to issue 1099 to the recipient of income and to the IRS. In this CE webinar, we will review the current law and regulations regarding the filing of Forms W-2 and 1099 and the speaker will provide practical guidance in these areas that have become the subject of increasing IRS scrutiny. The requirements are always changing, and answers are seldom clear-cut. This CPE webinar will de-mystify some of the tricky areas relating to Form 1099 and Form W-2.
