Thomson Reuters held their 2019 SYNERGY Users’ Conference in Denver, CO this year. This yearly conference is for tax and accounting professionals, and it’s an exclusive opportunity to share expertise, network with peers, and gain practical knowledge. The business partners and staff members were able to attend workshops and spend four days earning CPE credit, getting hands-on training, learning about technology updates, and being inspired by nationally recognized accounting, technology, and motivational experts. This was a great opportunity to network with others and share knowledge and tips to stay ahead of the curve and continue to bring top level service to our clients.
Are you making the most of tax benefits designed to offset some of the high costs of education? The American Opportunity Tax Credit, extended through 2017, provides a tax break of up $2,500 for qualified college expenses. The Act also made permanent several education-related tax options, including a $2,000 maximum contribution amount for Coverdell education savings accounts, which can be used to pay certain elementary, secondary and post-secondary expenses.
