Course Description: The Most Practical Tax Class Ever?
In 2018 this class will almost become a “must” for practitioners. The new Tax Cuts bill changes everything we know about the formation and operation of C corporations, LLC’s and S corporations. This year’s course will include a special chapter focusing on accounting methods (and changes!) as a result of the new cash method and Section 263A limits, and will include example completed Forms 3115 showing how and when the changes may be made. The 2018 in-depth course will also include detailed analyses of the choice of entity that best fits the taxpayer and in-depth discussion of the new 20% flow-through deduction. The LLC chapter will provide guidance on the new partnership audit regulations; the C corporation chapter will discuss the new tax rate and penalty taxes; and the S corporation chapter will examine the 20% flow through deduction, plus the impact of the new tax law on built in gains and the interaction of wages vs. the flow through deduction. Combining the 3 focus areas of C corporations, S corporations and LLC taxation with these two special topics will make this one of the most relevant courses a participant will take in 2018.
The Business Tax In Depth (16 hours) course for 2018 will include detailed analysis of the new 20% flow through deduction, plus the new depreciation rules and changes in the entertainment rules. We will include the new accounting method discussions, with an example Form 3115 on how to change methods. The C corporation chapter has been greatly modified to address the new popularity of the C corporation, and the S corporation class has been updated to discuss issues affecting S corporations in the new law such as built in gains; wages and specified service planning ideas.
