As you find yourself in filing season, there are undoubtedly issues within the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) that have you perplexed or perhaps even completely befuddled. You are far from alone in that sentiment of being dazed and confused. Little to no guidance has issued regarding crucial provisions in the statute. Other pronouncements have seemingly resulted in more questions than answers. This course seeks to remedy some of the inevitable apprehension inherent with first time filings after such a pronounced restructuring of the tax law. Though not a strict prerequisite, prospective attendees should first take a Surgent course reviewing the basics of the enacted TCJA provisions. Having completed one of these courses, our customers will be equipped to tackle the more nuanced, intricate points presented – some of which may remain in question for some time to come. As such, your questions will be encouraged and welcomed with an eye toward a short retrospective of the key 2018 developments. But the true worth and edification of this webinar will be its shedding light on the more precarious and unsettled aspects of tax reform, and that resulting knowledge may perchance be the difference in reeling in that new client or even avoiding that telephone call to your malpractice carrier.
