Course Overview
Over the past few months on this program, Barbara Weltman - president of Big Ideas for Small Business - has addressed a number of lingering issues involving 2018 returns. This month, she shifts her focus to recent tax controversies that offer hints to preparers of which returns attract IRS interest. Not surprisingly, the issues range from the tax "gap" of unreported income by self-employed individuals to cases involving the hobby loss rules.

  • Identify the main component of the IRS "tax gap"';
  • Explain the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on hobby activities;
