Reviewing Individual Tax Returns: What Are You Missing? (On-Demand) 2021


The sheer mass of Internal Revenue Code provisions affecting individual taxpayers presents a considerable challenge for CPA’s and tax professionals. Combine this with the potential for input error when utilizing an array of income tax software available, this creates the potential for a multitude of errors which can occur on the final tax return forms. Join us in this CPE self-study course as we discuss the common errors practitioners make on individual tax returns that are often missed by review staff.

You will sharpen your skills as a reviewer by examining case studies and discussing issues where additional information from the client may be warranted and areas of tax law where proper treatment requires additional analysis and information. Course materials include the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) tax reform law and follows a highly illustrative case study format to increase your comprehension and retention.
