Wolters Kluwer Provides a 2019 Post-Filing Season Tax Update
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting announced the publication of its “2019
Post-Filing Season Update,” available as a complimentary download
through the CCH®
AnswerConnect online research platform. The briefing highlights key
developments during the filing season that will impact taxpayers of all
types for the remainder of 2019.
“The IRS was able to keep promulgating tax guidance even during the
government shutdown at the beginning of 2019 and has continued since,”
said Mark Luscombe, JD, LL.M, CPA, and Principal Federal Tax analyst for
Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting. “This tax briefing is designed to bring
you up-to-date on what has been happening while everyone was focused on
tax return preparation.”
Key items included in the 2019 tax developments are:
- Filing of Tax Extensions. Many tax practitioners report filing
an increased number of extensions this year due to the complexities of
the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, promising an unusually active “second” tax
filing season for 2019
- IRS Guidance. The IRS continues to issue guidance implementing
the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as well as addressing other matters. The
most recent sets of guidance under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act are
proposed regulations with respect to the FDII and GILTI deductions and
a safe harbor after the year of acquisition for taxpayers claiming 100
percent bonus depreciation on vehicles subject to the luxury auto
- Tax Legislation Moving Through Congress. The House has passed
IRS reform legislation and the Ways and Means Committee has approved
retirement reform legislation. Legislation is also being considered to
make technical corrections to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, extend tax
breaks that expired at the end of 2017, and provide disaster relief
