This training will cover changes to individual taxes for 2021. This includes stimulus payments, the expansion of the child tax credit, and the expansion of the credit for daycare expenses. We will also cover topics pertaining to sole proprietors, including changes to Form 1099 reporting, and how a sole proprietor can claim tax credits under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
Schedule C is applicable to those who file the basic Form 1040, as well as seniors age 65 and older who file Form 1040-SR instead of the basic 1040. It usually brings concerns and confusion for self-employed or sole proprietors, while navigating through Schedule C to report business income. Although the approach for Form 1040 seems simple on the surface, there are many traps for the unwary.
At Compliancevent, we make this criteria of filing easy to grasp. We will go through Form 1099 and Schedule C of Form 1040 (sole proprietorship tax returns) in detail to clear up all uncertainties filers may have.
