Due to public health and safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 health emergency, the TaxSpeaker – Business 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 like 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 Tax Cuts bill changed everything we know about the formation and operation of C corporations, LLC’s and S corporations.  With in-depth coverage of LLC, S and C corporate tax issues the 2020 in depth course will also include detailed analyses of the choice of entity that best fits the taxpayer, and corporate formation issues.  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 2020.

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.

In response to your requests, our S Corporation chapter has been expanded with a new completed 2019 Form 1120S case study, discussion of Passive income and Built in Gains and analyses of this year’s court cases.  The C corporation chapter has also been updated reflecting all of the new NOL changes.  The Business interest chapter now includes the brand-new law changes and the LLC chapter-wow, the biggest year of changes for LLC’s since 1986.

All attendees receive the hyperlinked PDF E-Book and this year we will also provide discussion of corporate pension plans because of the newly upgraded new pension plan credit.
