2017/18 Federal and California Tax Update

Available December 15, 2017

Price: $259.00


Tax season and possible tax reform are coming

Let Spidell guide you through the maze

We'll cover:

Tax reform — the moving target:

  • Learn about the most current proposal at your seminar
  • Get written and/or video updates every time major changes are made
  • Get examples of how tax reform will affect you and your clients
  • Find out how California nonconformity will create more confusion
  • Briefly, here's a sample of what it looks like now:
    • They call it simple: three tax rates, but there is a surtax as well
    • No medical expenses, alimony deduction/income, or state income tax deduction
    • Further limit on mortgage interest and a $10,000 maximum property tax deduction
    • Sale of residence exclusion cut down
    • Special rates for investment income from passthrough entities and Schedule Cs

Does that sound simple? We think not! But we'll help you through the maze

New and updated important topics, and you will:

  • See how IHSS and EITC work
  • Review §1031 audit issues and cases
  • Prepare for legal cannabis sales — do you want to handle them?
  • Get updated identity theft information
  • Prepare yourself and clients for new partnership audit rules
  • Look at tax issues for retiring out of state
  • Resolve the dilemma: when to check and uncheck the box
  • Prepare for new FTB POAs — no more IRS forms
