Two-Day Mostly 1040 Plus Ethics


For 2022, this program is being combined with the In-Depth Tax School and offered live, online. Please refer to the Director’s blog, which will provide updates as decisions are made.

The Mainly 1040 Plus Ethics School concentrates on Form 1040 items and includes a 2-hour Ethics presentation that meets IRS requirements (but is not approved for CPAs or CFPs). The school is designed for preparers with intermediate levels of experience and is taught by tax experts. The program will not include in-depth coverage of Business Partnership, LLC, Corporate, Entity, or Estate and Gift Issues. Participants receive the same reference book that is used by over 37,000 tax professionals in 37 other states. The school covers a variety of topics from the reference book and emphasizes practical hands-on experience. The topics covered may include:

  • New and Expiring Legislation
  • Agriculture and Natural Resource Issues
  • Business Entity Issues
  • Business Issues
  • Financial Distress
  • Individual Issues
  • Investment and Retirement
  • IRS Issues
  • Qualified Business Income Deduction
  • S Corporation Tax Issues
  • Trust and Estate Issues
  • Rulings and Cases
  • Tax Rates & Useful Tables

The schools are offered each October & November in various locations in New York State.  This program has been offered for over 30 consecutive years and continues to grow in numbers.  The instructors are from Cornell University, New York State Certified Public Accountants, Internal Revenue Service and Agribusiness Professionals.  Continuing Professional Education credits (CPE) are available to New York State Certified Public Accountants and Enrolled Agents.

In addition to providing 2 hours of IRS ethics, the Mainly 1040 Plus Ethics school will focus on individual taxpayers with somewhat less complicated tax situations.

The textbook will include full coverage of all topics, for your reading pleasure.
