We are hearing from tax professionals that they would like deeper guidance on repair regulations and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver it.”

Surgent Professional Education, a leader in the field of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) for CPAs and other financial professionals, announces the introduction of a new repair regulations course targeted to the specific issues that have most challenged tax practitioners and their clients since the September 2013 issuance of these complex rules.

Tax practitioners advising clients as to whether expenditures relating to the acquisition and maintenance of tangible property must be capitalized or may be expensed are encouraged to attend. The course, currently offered as a live online webinar, aims to help attendees understand and apply the final repair regulations, which became effective on January 1, 2014. Surgent’s new course will help practitioners gain a deeper understanding not only of the rules in general but of the specific issues that have presented challenges, pitfalls, and confusion in the ensuing three years of client returns, as well as opportunities the regulations present for cost savings through strategic application.

“The repair regulations are very complex, and when they were issued most taxpayers and many preparers were confused by their application,” said Mike Tucker, a tax attorney and CPA and Surgent instructor. “Surgent educated thousands of CPAs on what we knew about effective compliance at the time,” said Tucker, who personally taught many of the courses. “Now we see that there’s still confusion, and we have three years of lessons learned, so it seemed like the right time to introduce an updated course.”

The new “Repair Regulations: 2016 Update” course (REPR) from Surgent will debut on Friday, December 2 and will provide 2 CPE credits for CPAs.    

“As a company that provides ongoing education for tax professionals, we adapt our course offerings to the real world needs and challenges of our clients,” said Amy Plent, Vice President of Content and Program Strategy for Surgent. “We are hearing from tax professionals that they would like deeper guidance on repair regulations and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver it.”
