CPAR - 2018/December, Seg.02 - A New Tax Year: Good News and Bad News

Course Overview
Besides issuing regulations, the IRS is also addressing a host of issues affecting 2018 returns, including a credit for businesses that provide their employees with family and medical leave. Barbara Weltman, president of Big Ideas for Small Business, brings us up-to-date on a number of new initiatives providing good news – a new way for small businesses to provide employees with health care coverage – to potentially bad news about the imposition of accuracy-related penalties on taxpayers and preparers.
