“Fiscal Cliff” Legislation Mini Course

Content Currency Date: July 2014 to July 2015

Course Description: 
On January 2, 2012, President Obama signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA) into law. Although ATRA raised income taxes for high-income individuals, it avoided tax rate increases for middle income taxpayers. ATRA also made many extensions of or modifications to existing law. In other instances, it reinstated many provisions for 2012 that were about to expire and extended them through 2013 and, in a few cases beyond. This course is an overview providing reference to selected individual, energy business, retirement, and estate tax provisions enacted or indexed for inflation by ATRA. The resulting major tax changes carry special meaning to the tax practitioner and return preparer. The course is intended to be a resource for tax professionals and staff alike to gain easy access to the most important major changes enacted by ATRA.
