    Event Description:

    In 2018 this class will almost become a “must” for practitioners. The new Tax Cuts bill changes everything we know about the formation and operation of C corporations, LLC’s and S corporations. This year’s course will include a special chapter focusing on accounting methods (and changes!) as a result of the new cash method and Section 263A limits, and will include example completed Forms 3115 showing how and when the changes may be made. The 2018 in-depth course will also include detailed analyses of the choice of entity that best fits the taxpayer and in-depth discussion of the new 20% flow-through deduction. The LLC chapter will provide guidance on the new partnership audit regulations; the C corporation chapter will discuss the new tax rate and penalty taxes; and the S corporation chapter will examine the 20% flow through deduction, plus the impact of the new tax law on built in gains and the interaction of wages vs. the flow through deduction. Combining the 3 focus areas of C corporations, S corporations and LLC taxation with these two special topics will make this one of the most relevant courses a participant will take in 2018.
