Each year, income tax return preparation is affected by inflation-related changes to various limits and new tax laws. This course will look at those changes and new laws.
The 2018 Annual Tax Season Update course is based on the 2018 Annual Federal Tax Refresher course and is designed to provide valuable information to persons preparing individual 1040 income tax returns reflecting clients’ 2017 income. It does not, however, satisfy the Internal Revenue Service’s voluntary annual filing season program.
