Michael Sardar Led A Webinar Entitled “Working With Schedule C Taxpayers With Incomplete Records,” For The CPA Academy, On March 26, 2020

In the event of a loss of client records or due to poor record keeping, a tax preparer may need to help his client reconstruct the records and/or make estimates.

This session covered tips and ideas on how to handle such issues from tax-return preparation through audit and included a review of the Schedule C Form, common Schedule C pitfalls, and the best practices for how the tax return preparer and client can utilize estimates and reconstructions in these situations. The session addressed the “Cohan Rule” and the AICPA Statement on Standards with respect to the use of estimates.
