Course Description

1040 Workshop Sec. 3

This is Section 3 of the 1040 Workshop. The complete 4-part course is designed to make the practitioner comfortable with “high traffic” issues, enabling participants to discuss and handle individual 1040 tax essentials. The course examines and explains practical aspects of return preparation and individual planning, bridging the gap between theory and application. Significant new developments are summarized with an emphasis on tax savings ideas. Practical applications and illustrations are used to systematically explore tax deferral, reduction, and elimination opportunities accompanying return preparation. For example, the analysis of gross income is discussed together with income splitting techniques; property transactions are examined alongside like-kind exchanges and involuntary conversions. The result is an extraordinary blend of the latest developments affecting individual returns and their related planning ideas.

* Sales and exchanges of property
* Home sale exclusion
* Installment sales
