Navigating New Beneficial Ownership Rules

Roger and Annie kick off the 2024 tax season by explaining the new beneficial ownership reporting requirements under the Corporate Transparency Act. They detail who must comply, what information must be disclosed, and the tight deadlines and penalties involved. They also discuss whether accountants should assist clients with these complex filings or refer them to attorneys. Additionally, Annie provides an update on navigating ERC claims during the current filing season and Roger warns listeners to pay attention to potential last-minute tax law changes from Congress.
