What an unusual year! The 1040 Manual this year has over 50 pages of new laws and court cases including the Secure Act 2.0, clarification of 2022’s Inflation Reduction Act; the Corporate Transparency Act; clear guidance on disaster losses as a result of the fires, floods and storms of 2023, new IRS crypto-currency guidance, new estate & gift rules and IRS opening attacks on the Employee Retention Credit frauds will require six hours on our part just to cover the new stuff. We have added a whole new Day one afternoon session on tax planning for individuals to go with our “1040 hot topics” normal review. On Day two we provide the newly updated engagement letter, fee schedules and new 1040 preparer and review checklists, interview forms and 1040 checksheets. The 1040 manual is your 1,000 page electronic desktop reference guide that for nearly 10 straight years has been voted by Tax Professionals in the independent review as The Only CPE Manual to be awarded a Top Research Award. **Fingertip tax guide & printed manual are only offered for live in person seminars. If you are attending a webinar then you will receive only the PDF version of the manual. The Fingertip tax guide or a printed manual can be purchased separately. **
Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to properly prepare, report amounts on, file, and deduct disaster losses from Form 1040. We will also teach you how to determine which credits clients may qualify for on their 1040 returns to reduce taxable income, including methods to save for their dependent children’s college education and other education credits and deductions. In addition, this course covers appropriate handling of IRS client audits, compliance with Circular 230 ethics regulations, and advice for clients under military special taxation rules.
