CPAR - 2019/January, Seg.03 - Preparing Your Clients for This Year's Filing Season

Course Overview
As tax advisers increasingly focus on preparing their clients for changes in their 2018 tax liability, this is also the season when we increasingly look to the IRS for regulatory guidance on those changes that were produced by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In addition to reviewing section 199A and other troublesome sections of the new tax code, Terri Lawson – partner-in-charge of tax at the firm of Frazier & Deeter, LLC – highlights how tax advisers may be able to moderate the high level of expectations that their clients are holding about this year ’s tax savings.
