This filing season was the first to feature almost all changes from to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act—not to mention the new Form 1040 and Schedules 1 through 6. To learn whether these changes had a significant impact on tax professionals, Taxing Subjects surveyed more than 5,000 preparers.
Respondents included CPAs, EAs, attorneys, and other preparers belonging to tax practices of all sizes, from offices preparing 20 returns to those handling more than 1,000 returns. They provided multiple-choice responses to five season-specific issues:
- What was your biggest challenge this season?
- How many clients had questions about the new Form 1040?
- How did the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act impact your clients’ taxes?
- Pick the TCJA change that gave you the biggest headache during tax season.
- If you could do it all over, would you have spent more time learning about the TCJA and Form 1040 changes?
