tax law changes

With certain tax law changes since the beginning of 2007, my CPA is having to correct my taxes several times. It doesn’t seem right that the govt can change tax laws several times during tax season. Other than “because they are the govt,” how come they can tamper with tax laws during tax season.
My CPA is correcting my taxes because we keep getting corrected 1099′s from my brokerage firms. The reason for the corrections I was given was because the laws keep changing.


Answer by Rob
The Tax Laws that were changed or extented in January 2007 were a benefit to the tax payer. The Tuition and Fees deduction was extended as was the Deduction for State and Local Sales Tax.. The changes were up for vote before the Holiday break, but Congress did not vote to extend them until after the first of the year. It was frustrating to both the taxpayer and the IRS as the Forms for 2006 were already printed


Answer by Jo Blo
congress actually made changes right before the end of 2006,, but those changes were to benefit the taxpayer.

Your CPA if full of it… There have been no changes in the middle of tax season. If they change something today it will be fore 2007. Any good CPA would keep up with changes in tax law and know this…

Answer by Judy
The changes were made by Congress in December 2006 to extend a number of tax breaks that had been scheduled to expire, and signed into law in January 2007. Any CPA worth dealing with knew about them at the end of December, and should have held off filing returns for any clients affected by them. There haven’t been other changes since then.

If he’s telling you that he’s had to correct your return several times, he’s not telling you true. I sure hope he hasn’t been charging you for all the amendments – if so, you’ve been had.

Federal laws on that haven’t changed for 2008

Answer by kidpup
This is a great question. There were several changes in Real Estate Depreciation. You may want to check the article

It has more info than I can offer here.

One particular is the leasehold improvements made to the interior of commercial real estate. This doesn’t sound like it applies to you, but there may be some which will affect you

Answer by Juli
I don’t know! It seems like they change all the time. You can’t be sure till the end of the year. I know there were a bunch of changes in March 2008.
