Working Paper Documentation


Workpapers support the creation of a tax return. You must provide proper data for your work, through accurate documentation of the position taken on a return and by providing authoritative support for it. This documentation not only impacts the preparer but also is required by the IRS to complete a proper audit of the return. The Internal Revenue Code requires every taxpayer to keep records and statements necessary for the proper administration of the tax laws. The accounting records of a taxpayer must include the regular books of account, as well as any working papers that may be necessary to support the entries on the books of account and in the tax return. However, nothing in federal tax law prescribes a specific format for tax return working papers. This webcast will help you take out the guesswork. With content updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), it will help you appropriately and adequately prepare, organize and understand workpapers
