The company’s tax school is an opportunity for anyone interested to increase their tax knowledge, examine their tax filing situation, and gain valuable new job skills. Enrollment is underway for fall basic (ten-week) (eight-week) (other) tax courses that will start (Date).

Congress has passed and the President has signed the Small Business and Work Opportunity Tax Act of 2007 which provides tax incentives for small businesses. The act changes the way the IRS will view a joint venture operated by a husband and wife who file a joint return for the tax year. They can elect not to be treated as a partnership for tax purposes. All items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit should be divided between the spouses according to their respective interests in the business. Each spouse takes into account his or her respective share of these items as if they were attributable to a trade or business conducted by the spouse as a sole proprietor.

There are more additions to the “kiddie tax.” The “kiddie tax” will apply to all children under the age of 19 (previously under the age of 18) and children under 24 who are full time students. However, if the earned income of any child over age 17 exceeds half of his or her support, then the “kiddie tax” will not apply. For this purpose, scholarships are not counted in the support test.

These changes and more will be covered during the tax school. Students do not have to have any previous tax experience to enroll, and can take advantage of flexible morning or evening class schedules. The only charge is a minimal book and supply fee. The curriculum offers practical application of the tax code to preparing returns on paper and on the computer.

“Our goal is to empower our students with an overview of individual income tax preparation and all schedules, credits, and deductions. Our course can enlighten students about deductions they may be overlooking. Or situations they may have encountered this year, like the tax implications of buying their first home or having a child,” said (Name), (Title) of Liberty Tax Service.
