Complex and frequently changing tax laws and regulations put added pressure on you and your staff – and with the latest changes, tax compliance work is more challenging than ever before. The Thomson Reuters Checkpoint™ Tax Preparer package is perfect for tax professionals who offer individual and small business tax return services.

With this package, you’ll be able to cut through your compliance workload by using timesaving resources such as PPC’s Deskbooks™ with Interactive Practice Aids. PPC’s Deskbooks provide you with complete and easy-to-understand answers for solving real-life tax return preparation issues, bridging the gap between interpreting the tax law, and reporting real-life client transactions. Workflow guidance, tools and other practice aids help to ensure returns are accurately prepared. Additionally, you’ll have access to roadmaps that will enable you to identify potential tax planning opportunities for clients, as well as integration with UltraTax CS® software that provides context-specific answers as you’re working within your clients’ returns.

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) includes:
  • Qualified Business Income Deduction. This new deduction, added by the TCJA, is intended to provide tax relief to businesses not benefitting from the reduction of the top corporate tax rate, and is a major new provision with the potential for widespread application.
  • Cost Recovery Provisions. The TCJA made numerous changes to bonus depreciation, the Section 179 deduction, and other cost recovery provisions. Proposed regulations have been issued to help provide guidance on these new provisions.
  • Favorable accounting methods. The TCJA greatly expanded the definition of who is eligible to use the cash method, as well as those who are exempted from the requirements that apply to the uniform capitalization rules, use IRC Sec. 471 rules to account for inventory, and use the percentage-of-completion method for long term contracts. Taxpayers eligible to change to these favorable accounting methods because of the TCJA change can do so automatically.

Plus, you and your team will stay on top of the latest tax news with EY Tax Alerts, Tax Watch, and much more.
