Disregarded Entities: Now You Don't See Them, Now You Do

Webinar: ID# 1010320
About This Course:
What is a disregarded entity (DE)? It is a business entity that is generally disregarded from its owner for federal income tax purposes, but not disregarded for (some or all) other purposes. If an entity is "disregarded" for federal income tax purposes, it may be "regarded" for other federal tax and state law purposes.

Yes, indeed, a plethora of exceptions to being "disregarded" exist. This unexpected, eye opening course capably explores and drills into what the tax planner, tax preparer, and taxpayer must know about the disregarded entity rules and exceptions to them. It also illuminates why you can't afford not to care.
