CPE Link provides resources on HIRE tax credits

More than half of small businesses are optimistic about the U.S. economy, and 25 percent plan to hire new employees, according to the SurePayroll Scorecard, which tracks small business hiring trends.

Will these small businesses join the 4.5 million companies that, according to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, have already earned federal tax credit for hiring under the HIRE Act of 2010? Or will they miss out on tax incentives to which they are entitled? Tax professionals who serve small businesses need answers now to advise their clients appropriately.
 
To help practitioners better advise their clients, CPE Link has made tax expert Vern Hoven’s HIRE Act Q&A document available free for a limited time. Practitioners can download the document from CPE Link.
 
Need more information? CPE Link is offering more presentations of its popular Web cast on Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act. This is a quick, convenient way for tax professionals to get up to speed on how the HIRE Act affects their clients and earn CPE credit at the same time.
 
Hoven, HIRE Web cast instructor, is a dynamic presenter who demystifies complex individual and business legislation. Hoven regularly presents for the AICPA, CCH, and many state CPA societies.
 
“Vern is a popular instructor whose Web casts quickly fill to capacity,” said Sue Anderson, CPE Link cofounder and program director. Hoven is a practicing CPA with a Master's Degree in Taxation. A nationally recognized tax lecturer, he regularly speaks more than 100 days a year for CPAs, lawyers, and realtors throughout the United States. He has been an AICPA national instructor, and the Illinois, Indiana, and Nebraska CPA Societies have all honored him with their Tax Instructor of the Year award.
