RIA, a Thomson business and the premier provider of technology and information to tax professionals in accounting firms, corporations, law firms and the public sector, announces the availability of RIA’s Complete Analysis of the Working Families Tax Relief Act of 2004 on Checkpoint, the integrated solution for online tax and accounting information.

The Working Families Tax Relief Act of 2004, about to be signed into law, includes a number of tax breaks for individuals and their families, as well as business. RIA’s Complete Analysis, the first comprehensive explanation of this new law, helps tax and accounting professionals identify and assist clients impacted by these changes.

The Act, which grew out of an effort to defer scheduled reductions in tax breaks for individuals, turned into a robust extenders and simplification package. It includes “middle class” and marriage penalty relief, a number of extended tax breaks for business (some retroactively resuscitated), Code simplification through a uniform definition of a qualifying child, and a number of technical corrections.

  • Child Credit Stays at $1,000 for 2005—2009
  • Full Marriage Penalty Relief in 2005—2008 for Basic Standard Deduction
