Program Description:

We invite you to join us for a midyear tax update course the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Things in the tax world have emerged quite differently after the pandemic. The context in which we understand tax has shifted and continues to shift. We cannot look at taxes the old way and keep up with the times. If we think the way we formerly thought, we’ll be left in the dust.

Courts are opening up whole new worlds of opportunity for taxpayers and doling out a major league slap-down on IRS. Treasury is issuing new guidance that shakes the earth on how we’ve always played the game. IRS is stumbling along at best, yet asking the lion’s share. Deadlines to contest tax liabilities appear to be opening up (the Red Sea and Jordan River have both parted). Timing of income and deductions has a whole new protocol. The way we approach most everything is turning upside down. This course opens the future to you and how to best proceed.


  1. Superseding returns – What they are, how they save your bacon
  2. Runaway inflation – Demands change to how we plan and think about tax controversy
  3. Timing of placement of PPP tax exempt income – New choices available to save you tons of money
  4. Treasury Regs getting slain right and left (thanks APA) – Advantage, taxpayer
  5. IRS performance (or lack thereof) – How do we proceed?
  6. Employee Retention Credit (reduction of wage deduction) – Practical guidance on next steps
  7. Sweat shops push aggressive ERC (Burger King gone wild) – How and why your client can’t fall for it
  8. IRS FAQs – What you can (and cannot) rely on, how to protect yourself
  9. Forms K-2 and K-3 (blow 1065 and 1120-S out of orbit) – IRS asks for the moon
  10. Reconstructing basis (from the dead) – Yes, you can
  11. Buy-sell agreements (warning shots over the bow) – What every client needs to know and do now
  12. (Mom and dad’s) IRA trust beneficiary designations bite dust – Why most estate plans no longer work, what to do about it
  13. Split dollar life insurance – Stunning new opportunity hits main street
  14. Supreme Court opens a floodgate (or door) – Missed deadlines and second chances that we’ve never before dreamed of having
  15. FinCen elbows its way in (take heed small business) – This summer, a tsunami hits small business America – How to defend
  16. Electronic Info Reporting (soon to encroach on the common man)
  17. Crypto (Congress, IRS, everyone, their son-in-law and dog) – Showdown at high noon coming soon
  18. Be your best (or else last known address) / Mailbox rule near death
  19. Estate and gift – If only we’d have known what we already know now
  20. Treasury Priority Guidance Plan – Hot new IRS and Treasury game-changing guidance coming to a theatre near you very soon

The revolution is at hand. Will you be a powerful part of it? This course will both enlighten you and put you on the right path.
