Description

This course is a great foundation to introduce new preparers to tax rules related to business returns. The course provides new staff coverage of tax areas affecting all business entities, providing staff training which they may carry to other business entity returns. Such business tax topics include the sale of assets used in any trade or business (Form 4797), depreciation (Form 4562), deductible vs. non-deductible items, and the basics of uniform capitalization. The objective of this course is to train new staff accountants, data processing employees, paraprofessionals, and bookkeepers to prepare a complicated federal corporate income tax return. It is a hands-on, practical course in filling out most tax forms, with extra emphasis on form changes due to new tax law.

Highlights

  • Preparation by hand of a reasonably complicated Form 1120 U.S. corporate income tax return from trial balance to completed return
  • The importance of Schedule M-1, including many adjustments in reconciling book income to tax income, and items preparation staff may look for on all business returns. Learn to self-review
  • New tax-planning strategies for depreciation deductions, including changes to §179 and first-year depreciation (Section 168(k)) as a result of new tax legislation
  • Methods of accounting -- Application and choices
  • In-depth analysis of Form 4797 dealing with depreciation recapture
  • Deductible expenses -- including rules on meals and entertainment
  • Section 163(j) as amended by CARES Act
  • Computation of tax liability
  • Overview of many common business deductions; which are deductible and which are M-1 items?
  • How to practically handle uniform capitalization and inventory accounting for a small manufacturing concern
  • And much more
