Filing Status and Dependency Issues

Session#: 915-17

Determining the proper filing status and who is an eligible dependent is not always an easy task.

Attend this session to master these concepts, which impact virtually every return you prepare.



Upon completion of the session, you will be able to:


  1. Accurately determine the taxpayer's proper filing status.

  2. Differentiate between a qualifying child and qualifying relative.

  3. Determine if a taxpayer is eligible to claim all of the tax benefits associated with a dependent.
