2019 Annual Tax Season Update (for 2018 Tax Filings): Part 2

Course Overview

Each year, various limits affecting income tax return preparation and tax planning are affected by inflation-related changes. In addition, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 will significantly affect tax planning and may also affect taxpayers' income tax liability. This course will examine many of those changes.

The Annual Tax Filing Season Update course, Part 1 and Part 2, discusses new tax law and recent updates for the 2019 filing season, provides a general tax review, and examines important rules governing tax return preparer ethics, practices and procedures.
