2019 Tax Season Chaos

Disclosure? Don’t File an Uncertain Tax Return Without It

And Other Late Breaking IRS Practice Developments

Written and Instructed by Bradley Burnett, J.D., LL.M. (Taxation)

(4 hour course)

With the plethora of Tax Cuts Jobs Act (TCJA) unanswered questions coming at us like a pack of defensive linemen, this tax season is (or at least seems to be) out of control. Approaches by tax software companies are “all over the board” moving targets. Clients want their tax returns now. If IRS scrutinizes a return (years later), they’ll have the benefit of hindsight. Much of the law is messy, messy, messy, messy.

What is a tax preparer to do? One approach is to disclose uncertainties (re: §199A or any other messy area) to IRS on tax returns now. Yes, that’s right. Kiss and tell. Tell the adversary what you’re up to. All for the sake of seeing you and your client through to a better day.

Want to learn the ropes as to how? Take our new 2 hour webinar and learn:

  • How does claiming §199A put the whole tax return in peril?
  • How the accuracy and preparer penalties for TCJA is a “tough go” early on
  • When disclosure may help (and, when it may not)
  • If disclose, specifically how? Is Form 8275 necessary, or does white paper cut it?
  • But, doesn’t disclosure get you audited?
  • What does age-old Form 8082 have to do with all of this anyway?

How and when to disclose? Let us knock it down to size for you.

  • Many other meaningful IRS developments have popped – We’ll take a good look
  • Are your current practices up to speed?

Designed for: Return preparers, tax planners and taxpayers desiring to keep up with late breaking tax developments.
