Westside Chapter invites you to join them on Sept 23, 2019 to hear Annette Saarinen's presentation, worth 2 hours Federal and State CE credits.

This discussion will be brief and is not an extensive or all-inclusive discussion on the topic of Depreciation.  The level of discussion is just beyond Basics.  We will be hitting the highlights only, and as with all complex topics, the Tax Preparers must be doing their own research as it applies to their clients’ situation. Some of the topics covered will include:
  • Background on Depreciation as a Tax Concept
  • Do you have to take Depreciation
  • Conversion from Personal Use Assets to Business Use Assets
  • Different "Varieties" and Methods of Depreciation
  • Depreciation Strategies
  • A Look at Auto Mileage Rates and Depreciation Component (Including Leases)
  • De Minimus Safe Harbor Expensing
  • Depreciation as it Relates to QBI and QBID and the Section 199(a)
  • Changing Accounting Methods

A link to the handouts has been sent to everyone who registered by Saturday, Sept 21.
