Overview

President Trump has promised a revolutionary tax reform plan, and Surgent will bring you the latest as the particular details unfold. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) tax compliance provisions continue to confound employers. The Protecting Americans Against Tax Hikes (PATH) Act made some of the former so called 'tax extenders' permanent, further extended others, and changed the substance of several. These are just a few of the changes that will affect your clients this coming season, and they will look to you to understand the issues and develop a plan that serves their best interests. In this course, tax advisors will be fully updated on the most important legislative and regulatory developments of the season as well as major trends and changes in the case law. Included is full coverage of all tax implications with a view toward planning.
