Top Federal Tax Issues for 2018

December 18

Get the latest on the top federal tax issues heading into 2018.

The federal tax landscape is always changing and 2018 may see some significant changes. Taxpayers and tax practitioners are impacted by court cases, legislation, revenue rulings as well as other issuances from the Treasury Department and the IRS. This is especially true now as major tax reforms are on the horizon. We will highlight hot topics and review federal tax developments which will affect 2017 tax return preparation. We will also discuss year-end tax planning for individuals and businesses that are still available before the December 31 deadline. Our focus will be both on domestic and international tax reporting issues. You will find value in gaining a broad understanding of what's on the tax horizon for next year.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to explain the benefits of year-end tax planning techniques to clients.

- You will be able to identify IRS enforcement initiatives which may impact your clients.

- You will be able to discuss and plan for 2018 IRS inflation adjustments.

- You will be able to recognize the essential elements of U.S. tax reform efforts.
