Overview

If only we could see ourselves as others see us. This course is designed to review some common pitfalls and real-world issues. Learn the traps taxpayers fall into -- before you make the mistake. The material includes a study of the law underlying the tax or practice issue, which will assist practitioners in satisfying their professional standards of practice and will help in preparing business returns. Avoid these missteps, plan for a better tax result, and benefit from a wealth of knowledge that can be applied to practice.

  • So what is next with the Department of Labor
  • Can I amend prior returns to correct an impermissible accounting method?
  • LLCs and partnerships: mistakes in allocation of debt, fringe benefits, and unreimbursed expenses; oversight in not taking into account limitations at the entity level; and pension issues
  • Business issues and the significant tax problems in related party transactions
  • Eyeing big benefits for small business
