Learn about how standards are changing for classifying employees and independent contractors.

This session addresses the 20 factors the IRS uses to classify workers, with a focus on the severe tax penalties for misclassification.  We will look at how Dynamex and AB5 will impact your organization.  We will also examine the “Gig” worker, review the broader independent contractor workforce, and apply the worker classification on year-end reporting.

Recovering the cost of capital is a critical business skill, and Congress is constantly changing the rules to impact the economy.  In this session, we will discuss the most recent tax depreciation rules and developments, as well as review the impact of TCJA and CARES Act changes.  We will address Section 179 and 168(k) expensing, along with capitalization regulations and Qualified Improvement Property.
