Course Description

This course introduces the Tax Professional to various federal income tax elections provided in the Internal Revenue code. The presentation will discuss the fact that some elections are required to be made by the due date of the tax return while others are allowed through the extension date of the return. Other elections could be up to the close of the Statute of Limitations of the filed return. Some elections are irrevocable while others can be revoked with permission of the IRS if properly requested. Some elections are required in the form of checking a box on an IRS Form or Schedule while others require a formally submitted attachment to the filed return.

The Internal Revenue Code also provides for the allowance of specified credits which are refundable while others are nonrefundable, and some credits are allowed for Alternative Minimum Tax purposes while others are not. Some credits are fully allowed while others are phased out due to other provisions in the law.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the presentation, the Tax Professional will have a broader and deeper understanding of the elections that are provided in the Code for individual and business tax purposes and how to properly apply them on a filed return. The participant will also know more about which elections are revocable or nonrevocable and by when the elections must be made.

In addition, the Tax Professional will have a better understanding of the specific individual and business tax credits available for use by their clients.
