CPAR - 2018/December, Seg.01 - Getting Ready for Changes in the New Filing Season

Course Overview
As advisers focus on preparing their clients for changes in their 2018 tax liability, they are also increasingly looking to the IRS for regulatory guidance on the results produced by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In addition to reviewing IRC sec. 199A and other troublesome code sections, Dean Surkin – a principal in the firm of Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C. – highlights how you should handle, or moderate, the high level of expectations that your clients are holding about this year’s tax savings.

  • Identify why clients may be disappointed by their tax returns for 2018;
