Working Paper Documentation

Description

Workpapers support the creation of a tax return. This documentation not only impacts the preparer, but is required by the IRS to complete a proper audit of the return. However, nothing in federal tax law prescribes a specific format for tax return working papers. Updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), this self-study course will help you appropriately and adequately prepare, organize and understand workpapers. 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. Updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), this CPE course will help you appropriately and adequately prepare, organize and understand workpapers.
