Course description and objectives:

When filing a federal income tax return, it is very important to know who is actually required to file a return and the criteria surrounding the filing of a federal income tax return.

Finally, this course will go over the filing of a deceased taxpayer’s federal income tax return and the treatment of decedent income.
