This case-driven training is designed to get the inexperienced accountant up to speed quickly in the most common areas of individual income taxation. The cornerstone of this course is the preparation of the Form 1040 using actual client data common to most individual income tax returns.


This two-day session is taught using a Hands-On methodology. Using a comprehensive case study (actual W-2s, 1099s, 1098s, K-1s, etc.), the participant will walk through the preparation of the Form 1040 and related tax schedules. Each participant will receive a comprehensive individual income tax reference manual that includes numerous practice aids, real world examples, new Federal income tax forms and schedules, and Pat Garverick’s Quick Reference Chart.

  • Form 8995 - Qualified Business Income (QBI) deduction

  • Schedule B - interest and dividend income
  • Schedule C and F - trade or business income and deductions

  • Schedule D - sale of capital assets and personal residences
  • Form 4797 - sale of trade or business property including the ordinary income recapture rules under 1245 and 1250
  • Schedule E - rentals, passive activities and flow through entities
  • Other gross income items including alimony, state and local refunds, IRA and pension distributions, unemployment compensation and social security benefits
  • Adjustments to gross income including IRAs, SEPs, student loan interest and self-employed health insurance

  • Overview of selected income tax credits (e.g., child tax credit, child and dependent care expense credit and the education credits)
