Course Description

Did you know about Code Section 139 that was enacted during 9/11? It allows any business to provide personal gifts, living reimbursements, family costs, etc to anyone and these expenses become deductible to the business. It is also tax-free and non-reportable to the recipient. Learn about this gem of a strategy for tax firms that has little reporting and just a few steps to take for your business clients, saving an average of tens of thousands of dollars while helping their employees (or others like family) with disaster-related home expenses. Add this to your firm's suite of value-priced offerings, while it is available in 2020 only, and be your client's hero.
