Summary
One tax seminar a year is a must... and this is the best! Our 2-day program - team taught by practicing CPA Vern Hoven and other national instructors in a highly informative and often humorous manner - covers the latest breaking lax developments affecting individuals, estates, businesses, partnerships and corporations. Participants will receive the most complete and up-to-date reference manual and, as an added bonus, the manual and all of its underlying reference materials are made available in electronic format. Join Vern and other national instructors as they share cutting-edge tax planning strategies and use their high energy presentation styles and real-life experiences to make complicated tax topics easily understandable.

Form 8971, with new Regulations and instructions, require executors to report each beneficiaries new basis timely. * Business changes: We will clarify and explain the latest developments on the ACA "repeal and replace" health insurance business mandate. HRAs options have been greatly expanded for many businesses. * Business retirement plans: 2017 COLAs for retirement plan contributions revealed. Extended due date for Forms 5500 changed back to original filing date. Be very careful about "Checkbook IRA-LLCs". * Payroll update: Information return penalties greatly increased. New voluntary certification program for PEOs. DOL increases its scrutiny of independent contractors. * Corporations: C Corporation tax rate changes - this is a big deal. Corporate inversions - expansive new regs explained. Built-in gain period changed ...again! * Partnerships: New law changes due date for 2017 partnership returns. Court recognizes bifurcated interest in LLC and excludes pass-through profit from SE Tax. IRS announces new "streamlined" audit emphasis on partnerships - what will this mean for our clients?
