    The coming year promises plenty of challenges and opportunities for individual and business tax clients. Single party control of the presidency and both chambers of Congress paved the way for the most unimpeded path to a major tax bill in many years. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) tax compliance provisions continue to confound employers. These are just a few of the changes that will affect your clients this coming season, and they will look to you to understand the issues and develop a plan that serves their best interests. In this course, tax advisors will be fully updated on the most important legislative and regulatory developments of the season as well as major trends and changes in the case law. Included is full coverage of all tax implications with a view toward planning.
