Workpapers support the creation of a tax return. This documentation not only impacts the preparer, but is required by the IRS to complete a proper audit of the return. However, nothing in federal tax law prescribes a specific format for tax return working papers. Updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), this self-study course will help you appropriately and adequately prepare, organize and understand workpapers. The Internal Revenue Code requires every taxpayer to keep records and statements necessary for the proper administration of the tax laws


CPAs, particularly new tax staff

• Learn to interpret document tax return information and correctly organize workpapers

• Know which workpapers are appropriate for specific tax situations
