TY2018 Kent NJ Problem

*BETA Test Only!*
Your comments, suggestions, and feedback are appreciated

The Kent problem from the old Pub 4491-W has been modified in various ways to be used as an adjunct to the TY2018 NJTax Law presentations, including the New Jersey modules.

The idea is that the instructor would alternate between Tax Law issues and entry of the corresponding parts of the Kent return in class. Ideally, students would "shadow" the instructor and prepare their own copy of the Kent NJ return in class as a way to get hands-on experience with most of the TaxSlayer worksheets (and quirks).

Be sure to Use Tax Year 2018

Note: As of 12-04 @ 08:00 - Federal Refund numbers in Scenario not correct
TS Practice Lab has started calculating the Qualified Business Income Deduction (QBID), but it is only calculating for Sch E Income, not Sch C Income. The Scenario Refunds were calculated before QBID started working. QBID does not affect AGI calculations, but will affect Federal Refund calculations. When QBID is working correctly for both Sch C and Sch E, we will update the Scenario with new Federal Refund numbers.
