ACC 330 Client Tax Profiles B Description

Note: There are five sets of client data contained in this Client Tax Profile document. Each set represents a category within tax planning, such as Set 2 Education Credits. To show how each category may be applied to clients, there are two client profiles within each category that provide different tax scenarios. This allows you to compare two client scenarios withing a single category of tax planning. The words category and scenario are used interchangeably in this assignment.

Important: This profile collection will be used in Module Six Case Study and will focus on a single category for Project Two in Module Seven.

Review each of these scenarios completely by opening their corresponding Form 1040 tax returns. They are linked to the client profile. These clients have each asked for ways to reduce their tax liability.
