The Virtual Presentation of Select Sessions of the Basics School will be held via the Zoom platform.  The presentation will be offered as follows:

November 29 – 2:00 – 5:00 pm ET
SALT Year-End Tax Accounting Class (INCOME TAX SCHOOL)

This session will cover the basic components of the multistate tax provision calculation including valuation allowances, ASC 740-10 (formerly FIN 48) and any related calculations due to new legislation and audit controversies. The session will also include best practice suggestions and recommend tools and resources for use in the year-end close documentation and footnote process. The session is designed to cover the basics for first year preparers, but advanced enough to provide a planning and coordination roadmap for more seasoned preparers.
