This Virtual Tax Conference is specifically designed to help prepare tax and financial professionals for their coming year-end planning meetings with clients, as well as to help them solidify a tax planning strategy going into 2020.

Enacted two years ago, the sweeping tax reform legislation known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) still presents many challenges to tax practitioners. With the upcoming election year, made more complex by the backdrop of impeachment proceedings, understanding the TCJA and recent tax updates is essential for tax practitioners and financial professionals who wish to best serve their companies and clients.

Surgent’s 2019 Virtual Tax Conference, the company's third annual such event, will review the most challenging aspects of the TCJA, as well as updates on new legal, regulatory, and case law developments. After attending this event, practitioners will be able to head into the 2020 tax season knowing that they understand the tax law, can advise their clients accordingly, and can prepare the newest versions of IRS tax forms. This Virtual Tax Conference is specifically designed to help prepare tax and financial professionals for their coming year-end planning meetings with clients, as well as to help them solidify a tax planning strategy going into 2020.

This engaging and unique online event will be hosted by Mike Tucker, J.D., CPA, and divided into five distinct sessions, all curated to provide the most applicable and timely tax updates and planning strategies. With Q&A included throughout the virtual event, attendees will be able to dive deep on questions posed to the panel of expert presenters.

The first session, Update on Congress’ Legislative Agenda and What to Expect in an Election Year, hosted by Jad Chamseddine, J.D., Tax Analysts, will prepare tax practitioners for upcoming changes to tax law and policy, all while considering major shifts in the current political climate.

The second session, Individual Tax Update and Planning for 2019 and Beyond, hosted by Brian O’Sullivan, CPA, CVA, LG Legacy Group, and Don Williamson, J.D., CPA, American University, will address the most complicated aspects of the TCJA, as well as the latest developments pertaining to individual tax.

The third session of the event, Business Tax Update and Planning for the End of 2019 and Beyond, hosted by Renata Stasaityte, CPA, UHY Advisors, and Don Williamson, comprehensively covers business tax topics, including bonus depreciation, §179, parking expenses, accounting method changes, the business interest deduction limits of §163(j), choice of entity, and structuring settlements.

The fourth session, Update on Pass-through Entities After Tax Reform, hosted by Brian O’Sullivan and Don Williamson, is entirely devoted to pass-through entities, featuring detailed information on the hottest topics such as partnership audits, capital account reporting, §199A, and the excess business losses of §461.

The fifth and final session, New IRS Forms and Compliance Requirements for 2019, hosted by Brian O’Sullivan and Renata Stasaityte, allows attendees to be the first to learn about the new 2020 W-4 and the 1040-SR for seniors. This session will also cover the changes to Form 1040 and its Schedules as well as Form 1065 and Schedule K-1.

These are just a few highlights of the numerous tax issues that will be presented in this 8-hour CPE program. Attendees will come away from this event with a comprehensive understanding of critical tax topics, ready to advise their clients regarding the latest developments.
