This could be the best course you take in 2018. It has been designed and written exclusively for the planning aspects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and includes dozens of ideas and tools to help taxpayers utilize the income tax opportunities available in the Act.
Designed to guide the practitioner through dozens of old and new planning ideas, the class gives participants the tools needed to help clients through items such as unusual income years, as well as long-term guidance for small businesses and high and low income individuals. This is a rare course designed for tax planning rather than tax compliance.
This course will discuss options for dealing with the lost deduction for employee business expenses, the limit on itemized deductions for taxes, and the new interest deduction rules. It will also lead the practitioner through the maze of new thresholds for itemized deductions and guide small business owners with fringe benefit tools. A number of retirement planning tools are discussed while examining the appropriate uses and modifications allowed for various types of plans. The chapter for small business owners analyses the attributes of various entity types including the low C corporation tax rate, wages vs dividends and the 20% flow through deduction.
The individual tax planning course is divided into three sub-topics: planning ideas for the W-2 taxpayer; planning ideas for the small business owner; and planning ideas for everyone. Each sub chapter includes 15-30 planning tools, checklists and example guidance illustrating the rules and tools needed to utilize the idea presented.
