Description

Most review techniques developed by professionals are self-taught and fine-tuned via experience. Yet how does one start? The purpose of this course is to give both new and seasoned reviewers additional and advanced procedures via a multitude of checklists to thoroughly review various tax returns. Its emphasis is not planning; rather, it is to develop a strategy to properly review a return effectively and thoroughly. The course includes dozens of practice tips for new reviewers and is updated for impacts of newly enacted legislation.

Highlights

  • Timely coverage of breaking tax legislation
  • Review an error-prone "staff-prepared" Form 1040 from client-provided information. Were do you start? Get to know your client and ask the questions
  • What are common errors preparers make and what are the areas generating malpractice claims?
  • The importance of engagement letters, questionnaires, and §7216 permission statement
  • Initial administrative groundwork
  • Identifying organizing issues in the tax return to be reviewed
  • Avoiding “willful blindness”
  • Efficient review of certain advanced issues for income, adjustments, deductions, and credits
  • Effective procedures for delinquent clients, filing past-due tax returns
  • First-time client issues requiring extra scrutiny
  • Multiple checklists of efficient procedures to identify potential issues on a 1040 return
  • Listing of schedules for staff to prepare to make a review easier, including basis issues for 1040 clients
  • Reconciling time pressure with thoroughness and quality control
  • Professionals acting professionally
