Week 4 Assignment – Tax Research

  1. Week 4 Assignment – Tax Research

    Overview

    You are an accountant preparing tax returns for your client. After you file their taxes, the IRS selects your client for an audit. The IRS disputed two items deducted in the tax returns filed by your client: travel expenses and entertainment expenses. After talking with your client, you are sure that your client is correct, and that the IRS’s position is not. You must provide a defense for the client that requires you to research the issues in order to render an educated opinion on a course of action for your client. Note: You may create and/or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.
