Most review techniques developed by professionals are self-taught and fine-tuned via experience. Yet how does one start? The purpose of this course is to give both new and seasoned reviewers additional and advanced procedures via a multitude of checklists to more thoroughly review S corporation and partnership tax returns. Its emphasis is not planning; rather, it is to develop a strategy to properly review a return effectively and thoroughly. The course includes dozens of "practice tips for new reviewers" and is updated for impacts of newly enacted legislation.

Major subjects

  • Reviews of portions of error-prone "staff-prepared" Forms 1120-S and 1065 from client-provided information
  • Be aware of legislative changes
  • How to reduce input errors. (b) to maintain capital accounts; Section704(c) regulations for preventing the shifting of tax consequences among partners or members; allocating recourse, nonrecourse, and qualified nonrecourse debt; a review of Section754 step-up in basis rules
  • Discussion of more complex transactions included in corporate structures
  • Multiple checklists of efficient procedures to identify potential issues on an 1120-S or 1065 tax return
