Due to public health and safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 health emergency, the TaxSpeaker – 1040 Tax in Depth will be offered in a Live Society Webinar (this is NOT a recorded presentation).  You can ask questions during the class just lie an in-person class and they will answer them, live, as they are able, just like an in-person class.

Our seminar presenters are already updating their materials to include the latest information regarding the tax aspects of the CARES Act and other Covid-19 legislation.

The 2020 course will include detailed coverage, with planning ideas, of the latest changes from the 2019 Budget Bill, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Families First Act from 3/20 and the CARES Act from 3/2020 with special focus coverage of sole proprietorship issues and IRA’s as well as our annual review of common preparation issues and new court cases and IRS guidance.  Because this is TaxSpeaker’s flagship course participants are assured of receiving the best, most thorough and hands-on individual tax preparation education available in the country.

Every chapter has been updated for the effects of the end-of-2019 Budget Bill and both March 202 tax bills, with in-depth discussion and examples of those changes!  2020 changes are all coming together with 4 different bills into a massive year of tax changes.

The 1040 In Depth course manual is America’s only independently awarded recognition for multiple years as the top Research live course CPE manual in the country.  With over 1,000 pages of practitioner-written guidance, organized in the logical form order used by the IRS to assemble returns, participants receive an electronic manual.  Written and taught by actual practitioners known for high-energy presentations in educational and humorous, yet informative manners, this course has been ranked as TaxSpeaker’s finest course for 15 straight years.  Because a lot of our speakers are required to personally prepare, for compensation at least 200 returns annually, participants are assured of receiving practical guidance, excellent speakers, and dozens of checklists, worksheets and client letters while obtaining the latest “What’s New” information.  All paid seminar attendees are also provided with a “FREE” 2 hour self-study ethics course.
