The Protecting Americans Against Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 made some of the former so called 'tax extenders' permanent, further extended others, and changed the substance of several. In addition 2015 saw major changes to Social Security file-and-suspended strategies, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) tax compliance provisions continued to confound many employers. Both businesses and individual clients will be affected by all the tax changes that need extensive tax planning by the tax advisor. Not only will you be updated on the most important tax issues that require your attention, but this course will also review the major trends and changes in the case and regulatory law. Included is a full coverage of all tax changes with a view toward planning. Updated for coverage of the NEW Department of Labor exemption classification and overtime requirements.
