Overview

The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray; the same is true for taxpayers and practitioners. Every practitioner has been confronted with a client who had a different twist on a tax idea. This course focuses on the law in order to break down 50 situations in which a taxpayer has attempted to push one of these ideas. The study of the law underlying the tax mistakes made will assist practitioners in satisfying their professional standards of practice and will help you in preparing Form 1040.

Major Topics:

  • Individual income tax cases regarding income, adjustments, passive activities, and itemized deductions
  • Don’t get caught watching the paint dry, the IRS “Future State” Initiative
  • Does aggregating passive activities also aggregate “At-Risk”?
  • When “gifts” can be taxable
  • How many Schedule A filers after TCJA?
  • Why are manhole covers round?
  • Chained CPI Index and Social Security – Is the Horse within the Gates?
  • Hazy situation, two seemingly similar cases, yet one results in ordinary tax treatment, the other capital treatment (Heads they win, tails we lose)
  • When a “rollover” is not a rollover, the Claim of Right Doctrine
  • What are the risks with non-traditional IRA investments
  • I want to protect my identity, but I also need to protect my PTIN
  • Failing alimony’s requirements and the last word is not always the best word
  • Failing to understand the limits on 401(k) loans
  • Passive income and the self-charged rent rules
  • Meal allowances for police or fire workers on 24-hour shifts
  • Itemized deduction over aggressiveness
  • Estimated taxes, the big penalties, and planning
  • Financial planning: Ignoring the future of Social Security; miscues in rollovers & retirement plan distributions; the bad, the good, and the ugly of early retirement SEPPs
  • Things professionals do not like to hear!
