Course Description
  • It discusses the reporting requirements for filing the Schedule C with IRS Form 1040 as well as what is an allowable deduction under the §162 Ordinary and Necessary business expense requirements.

  • It provides suggested Research Materials for preparing the Schedule C, including specific IRS Publications and Rulings as well as various Internal Revenue Code Sections.

  • It discusses why the Tax Professional should understand the audit issues surrounding the Schedule C and the easy "audit targets" that the IRS auditor is sure to be reviewing.

  • It gives the Tax Professional the general rules surrounding the deductibility of ordinary and necessary business expenses and the separate specific limitations of expenses that are limited or not deductible at all, under a different section of the law.

  • This course will provide specific data discussing the activities of a business versus a Hobby.

  • The course is important for determining the critical issue of "placed-in-service" dates for fixed assets being deductible and determining that they are deducted in the proper tax year.

  • In addition, the presentation provides the proper understanding of the issues related to the disposition of a fixed asset as to the proper period in which the remaining adjusted basis is allowed to be written off if discarded, as well as the §1245 recaptured depreciation when the fixed asset is sold in a taxable event or converted to personal use by the sole-proprietor.

  • The course is important in that it guides the Tax Professional in learning how to audit proof their clients' deductions, especially in the area of related party transactions.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, the Tax Professional will be able to better guide their Schedule C clients on how to properly substantiate their business expense deductions and recognize revenue in the proper tax year. In addition, they will be able to provide more knowledge on how to succeed in an IRS audit.
