This unique seminar will aid you in choosing the best type of entity for your clients based on the most recent tax legislation of TCJA as well as the new COVID-19 laws and related IRS regulations. New tax strategies and planning techniques will be highlighted for Partnerships (LLC's, S-Corps & C-Corps). This is a must attend seminar!
This course covers all the bases: recent TCJA changes, impact of Sec. 199A deduction on best entity to use for a particular client, maximizing availability of fringe benefits, minimizing exposure to self employment tax, as well as a myriad of common consulting issues taxpayers encounter with regard to choosing the best type of tax entity for their trade or business, or holding real estate.
Overview: So, this is an easy question? LLC for holding rental real estate, S corp to save employment taxes and using a C corp for fringe benefits, or if your client is contemplating going public and wants to take advantage of Code Sec. 1202(b) 100% exclusion on gain? After the TCJA and even the CARES Act, the type of entity our clients select can have a huge impact on possible tax consequences. If you are an experienced practitioner mentoring newer tax staff, this is one of the most comprehensive courses that will deal with the “life cycle” of a business or rental activity. It will delve heavily into the Code and examine the applicable provisions impacting formation of the specific entity, as well as the key issues faced during its existence. Then, it will cover those tax implications when considering the termination, sale or exchange of the entity. Newer tax staff will be exposed to the IRC and the underlying language behind all of the key provisions that they should have a handle on as their careers progress.
