Correcting And Amending Form 1040 - Details:
Did you know the Internal Revenue Code does not expressly authorize the allowance of amended tax returns? Amended tax returns have historically been recognized by the IRS only under its Administrative Authority as provided under the powers of the Internal Revenue Code. This session will cover statutes of limitation for an amended return, reasons to amend or not to amend open tax years, how to reduce the need to amend returns, taxpayers' and tax preparers' responsibilities, effective preparation of an amended return, and many other related topics. A solid understanding of the tax law as it pertains to individual tax returns is essential.
