* 22017 PROPOSED TAX LAW - HEALTHCARE LEGISLATION - Congress has failed at "repeal and replace." Why was it important to do healthcare legislation before tax reform legislation? Steve will explain what you need to know and bring you up-to-date on new developments.

* 2017 PROPOSED TAX LAW - TAX REFORM LEGISLATION - Will we get real tax reform or just tax rate reduction? What must Congress do and when will it likely happen? Who are the likely winners and losers? How will changes affect your choice of business entity? Many questions looking for answers. Come join the conversation. Learn all about it. Sign Up and Steve will bring you up-to-date.

* 2017 IRS GUIDANCE - OR LACK THEREOF! -- What's the IRS doing? Or not doing? Where are the Regulations? Revenue Rulings? Revenue Procedures? Has the IRS gone into hibernation? Steve's got the answer. Sign Up and hear all about it.

* 2016 TAX LAW - 21st CENTURY CURES ACT - Congress legislates tax relief for small businesses. Learn about the new "qualified small employer health reimbursement arrangement." Without healthcare reform, HRAs now are more important than ever. Effective dates are tricky. Sign Up and get the details.

* PROPOSED REGULATIONS - PARTNERSHIP AUDIT RULES -- Released one day, withdrawn the very next day and now re-released. Now what? Congress re-writes how the IRS will audit partnerships and LLCs. This change will affect tax return preparers and will have a profound effect on partnerships, LLCs and its investors. The new audit rules take effect in 2018. Sign Up and find out what you need to know now.

* THE IRS AND TAX RETURN PREPARERS - Have you heard about the class-action lawsuit regarding PTIN fees? The court has ruled. What will the IRS do next? And the IRS still wants to regulate tax preparers -- and guess what - so do some members of Congress! Steve's got the details. Sign Up Now!

* NEW DEVELOPMENT - IRA ROLLOVERS - The 60-day rule is waived! How is that possible? Can you say self-certification?

* DEVELOPING HOT ISSUE -- GAO REPORT - Is your information safe? The IRS and Defense, among others, are still using 1950s technology. Do you remember DOS? 8-inch floppy disks? COBOL assembly language? FORTRAN? Steve's got the report. Sign Up Now and find out! Oh, wait, the GAO has just updated its report. Was it good news or bad news? Sign Up and find out.

* NOTEWORTHY COURT CASES - Pitfalls of a self-directed IRA. Same CPA advised different clients. Both lose in Tax Court. Taxpayers have deemed distribution of IRA assets from prohibited transaction. Find out why.
