Today’s clients are mobile, often traveling, moving, working, or vacationing out-of-state and abroad.  Some are married, while others get married far from home.  At tax time, it is left to the savvy practitioner to determine the treatment of income and expenses resulting from spousal property subject to a community property regime applicable in nine US states and many foreign countries.  If you are working with nomadic taxpayers, this course is a MUST!

Participants will understand: 

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand that community property arises by operation of law.
  • Recognize that community property laws can help to protect the rights of women.
