Wow. That's all we can say about America's only independently awarded recognition for multiple years as the top Research live-course CPE manual in the country. With over 1,100 pages of practitioner-written guidance, organized in the logical form order used by the IRS to assemble returns, participants receive both a printed and electronic manual. Written and taught by actual practitioners known for high-energy presentations in educational and humorous, yet informative manners, this course has been ranked as TaxSpeaker's finest course for 15 straight years. Because all of our speakers are required to personally prepare, for compensation at least 200 returns annually, participants are assured of receiving practical guidance, excellent speakers, and dozens of checklists, worksheets and client letters while obtaining the latest "What's New" information.
Our 2018 course will include detailed coverage, with planning ideas of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, special focus coverage of sole proprietorship issues and emerging economy issues (Consumer-to-consumer sales, Crypto-Currency, etc.) as well as our annual review of common preparation issues and new court cases and IRS guidance. In-depth example coverage of the new mortgage interest rules and the dependent credit will provide professionals with the answers to their latest 1040 client questions. Because this is TaxSpeaker's flagship course participants are assured of receiving the best, most thorough and hands-on individual tax preparation education available in the country, and the independently awarded recognition proves it. At TaxSpeaker we don't self-anoint our books or instructors as "The Best", we let independent third parties do it for us!
The 1040 in Depth course (16 hours) will include all of the changes to individual tax returns; plus discussion of the 20% flow through deduction, in addition to all of our other Whats New items, the February, 2018 extender bill; and the March 2018 Budget Bill.
Every one of our speakers is required to be a current practitioner with knowledge and humor who brings their current experience to the room in a presentation approach designed to make the class rewarding, interesting and stimulating, and every single speaker has won multiple "Best Speaker of the Year" awards! We utilize cutting-edge technology to provide you with literally hundreds of hyperlinks, useful websites, supporting research and case law citations to arm you with the most powerful annual guidance available. Driven by current year changes, we make sure to discuss them all before moving to reviews of current year problem areas identified by our practitioner-speakers as the most pressing issues of the year. The What's New analysis often takes up 10-12 of the 16 hours of the class because of our depth of coverage from real practitioners.
All participants receive the national award winning TaxSpeaker Manual which has been called “The Best in the Industry” at well over 1,300 pages that are updated every year. It is written to be used as a primary desktop reference manual and organized in a common-sense manner. All of the latest changes are provided individually within each chapter as well as in their own special “What’s New” chapter at the beginning of the manual.
We still continue to provide our attendees the best value in the business with a tab-divided printed manual as well as a free PDF version containing hyperlinks to hundreds of citations. This course provides in-depth coverage of 1040 returns and the related schedules and forms with a particular emphasis on problem areas.
