This Tax Preparation Gross Income And Adjustments To Income Course will focus on taxable income, adjustments to income, and itemized deductions.
We will look at each component from various angles, starting with a lecture discussing the topic and then looking at examples to better understand the concepts.
We will use tax forms to work problems and an accounting equation method using Excel so students will understand the impact on the actual tax return and visualize the concepts using a tax formula.
Determining what income is is essential given that we have an income tax. For taxes, of course, everything is flipped upside down, income being bad, expenses or deductions being good. We often receive documentation that can help us report income, such as W-2 Forms and Form 1099s, but sometimes we may not get any documentation and still be required to report income.
Different types of income may also be taxed at different rates. Practice problems demonstrating different forms of income and the impact on the tax return will help learners better understand the concepts practically.
Adjustments to income can be thought of as a type of deduction, but deductions are separate from the standard deduction and itemized deductions. We will look at the main adjustments to income and provide examples to show how they are reported on the tax return.
Itemized deductions may be taken if they are greater than the standard deduction. We will look at each itemized deduction category, provide examples, and show how they can impact the tax return.
