Session Topics: 

The New Schedule D – In the Real World!
Tuesday, 3:50-4:40pm; Wednesday 3:10-4:00pm
The Schedule D got a major face lift this year and a companion Form as well. The Hot Issues are; “Basis”? What’s with the “Form 8949”? “Covered vs. Not Covered” – How do I read that Form 1099-B? Getting it right when the Form 1099-B is wrong. When do I need to file the Schedule D? Do I have to “list” every transaction and trade; can I submit a summary? What about the “Adjustment Codes”? In this session we will present scenarios, resources and the questions you need to ask so you can be confident when you file the New Schedule D and Form 8949 in the real world of your practice.
 
The New Schedule E – In the Real World!
Wednesday 9:05-9:55am; Thursday 10:10-11:00am
The Schedule E has had a major facelift in 2011. Hot issues are “Self-Rental”, “Vacation/Short-Term Rental” and “disclosing Form 1099”.  Do you file for a client with a “Qualified Joint Venture”? The old Schedule E was challenging enough. Are you covering all the details or letting your software do the work? In this session we will present the scenarios, resources and court cases that you need to understand so you can file the New Schedule E in the real world of your practice.
