Individuals having one or more Tax Seasons and a general understanding of individual, corporate and business income taxation who are involved in the preparation and/or review of individual, corporate and business income tax returns or who provide tax planning advice to individuals and businesses.


Due to major changes under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), the 2019 tax season was one of the most challenging in recent memory. But those challenges did not end with the 2019 tax season. IRS continues to release significant guidance on many of TCJA's key provisions. The seminar will review the latest developments and guidance on critically-important TCJA provisions, such as: the final '199A 20 percent deduction regulations which are binding for 2019; 100 percent '168(k) depreciation deduction; expanded '179 deduction; limitation on business interest expense; disallowance of entertainment expenses; deductibility of business meals; accounting method changes for small businesses; individual excess loss provisions; disallowance of miscellaneous itemized deductions; modifications to home mortgage interest deduction; and more! This seminar will also provide a review of any other significant 2019 tax legislation, as well as new tax cases, rulings and regulations expected to have the most significant impact on individuals and businesses, including the new centralized partnership audit rules (CPAR). The presentation will emphasize tax planning opportunities resulting from these recent developments.
