The IRS has a free webinar on "Tax Reform Due Diligence Requirements" scheduled Dec. 13, 2018.

Here is the link:


4 years paid, 2 years VITA. I just got through reading the due diligence form and *I* am not 100% sure what counts as due diligence for Heads Of Household who are potentially EITC and/or child tax credit eligible.

Considering I work and live in a neighborhood where a *lot* of my clients are Heads Of Household and also have family and/or financial situations that don't fit the "white picket fence" stereotype but do meet my "plausible and consistent" standards once I've asked sufficient questions, I'm worried for both my clients and myself that just asking the questions and notating answers isn't going to save myself, my company OR my clients from IRS problems.

I have no problem with me completing the due diligence but what about the do it yourselfers. Who is monitoring them?
