In light of the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, this course offers practitioners new planning techniques with regards to children. Many clients who are parents are unsure of how to navigate dependency exemptions due to foreseen and unforeseen changes in their lives. What are clients’ options when they marry a person who has children from a prior relationship? What happens should those parents then divorce? Can the stepparent still claim the children as dependents? And if not, what options are available to the stepparent instead?
This course provides practitioners with the latest and most up-to-date rules to assist clients in navigating the entities that affect child dependency, the factors that influence those entities, and planning techniques so each parent is prepared for tax season.
