Need to Know Tax Planning Details
Year-end tax planning is always complicated by the number of changes that have occurred throughout the year and 2013 is no exception. The new CCH Tax Briefing: 2013 Year-End Tax Planning explores some of the 2013 year-end planning opportunities available to taxpayers, especially as the result of provisions that are new-for-2013 and those that, at the moment, are scheduled to expire after this year. CCH, a part of Wolters Kluwer is a leading global provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services.
"In addition to changes coming from the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA), the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Affordable Care Act) as well as new tax rules applying to same-sex married couples, there are other variables that could also impact the upcoming tax season," said CCH Principal Federal Tax Analyst Mark Luscombe, JD, LLM, CPA. "We could be looking at a delayed start to the tax filing season depending on how long the government shutdown goes, and there's also the possibility of comprehensive tax reform coming in 2014."
