Includes Video Recording, Handout, and Exam

3 hour, 3 CPE, 3 IRS CE

Program Description:

IRS in the past directed S Corp shareholders to attach informal schedules (to their tax returns) to report their stock and debt basis. To report S Corp shareholder stock and debt basis for 2022, IRS demands we attach new Form 7203. Oddly, the new-fangled form need not be attached every time, just sometimes.

This newly updated course answers all of the questions listed below and more. Go ahead, take yourself a self-test below. And, if you don’t know the answer to any of these questions, we’ll answer them all for you.
