Learn how to Prepare Your Clients for the Biggest Tax Break in 36 Years
Put on your seatbelt and hold on. The IRS issued final regulations for one of the most talked-about areas of taxation. Experienced instructor and practitioner Greg White, CPA, will do a “deep dive” into the new “20% passthrough deduction.” The IRS simultaneously issued a new safe harbor for taking the QBID rental properties (Rev. Proc. 2019-38); We’ll cover the new rental real estate safe harbor in depth. The focus will be on practical planning and focused on reducing your clients’ taxes.
