FMN - 2018/July, Seg.4 - Business Taxes: Planning for 2018, While Finalizing 2017

Course Overview
Although the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was a massive tax reform, Congress has continued to provide additional tax legislation for businesses to consider. From the perspective of Edward Zollars, a partner in Thomas, Zollars & Lynch, Ltd. as well as the lead tax discussion leader for the Loscalzo Institute, these new laws have increased the pressure on the IRS to release much-needed guidance, while returning the attention of businesses to the potential need to amend their recently-filed 2017 returns.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Identify why businesses should consider amending previously filed 2017 returns;
  • Define which improvements qualify for the sec. 179D deduction for energy-efficient buildings;
  • Explain why the government is imposing the sec. 965 transition tax on foreign dividends in 2017; and
  • Distinguish between how "qualified improvement property" is treated for purposes of bonus depreciation and how it is treated for sec. 179.

Prerequisites/Advanced Preparation:

Work experience in tax planning or tax compliance, or an introductory course in taxation.
