Bio

When Laura Strombom graduated from college with a degree in animal science, she had no idea that one day she'd end up in the accounting field. While taking courses to make her a better business owner, Laura discovered a passion for numbers. From there, her interest in bookkeeping, accounting, and tax preparation grew. After acquiring management experience from a major retailer and new skills as a controller for a few small, family-owned businesses, Laura launched All About Numbers in 1995, where she offered bookkeeping, payroll, accounting software support, tax preparation, and other related services. While growing her business, Laura obtained an EMBA, became an EA, and became a National Practice Institute Fellow. When not focused on business, Laura enjoys riding her horses on the local trails and spending down-time with her dogs.

On-Demand WebinarChanging from a Multiple Member LLC to a Single Member LLC On-Demand Webinar<h3>Summary</h3> <p>As your LLC clients’ business operations and classifications change, make sure you’re able to advise them through this transition while preparing their tax returns. In this webinar, we will walk through the process of changing an LLC from a multiple- to single-member LLC. The IRS treats single-member LLCs as sole proprietorships or corporations, and does not classify it as a partnership. There are also different tax forms necessary to file, such as Form 8823 (Entity Classification Election) and agreements from existing members, when transitioning from a multiple- to single-member LLC. If you have LLC clients, this is a key webinar for you!</p> <iframe src="https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/ofs0tokt1z" title="Wistia video player" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" class="wistia_embed" name="wistia_embed" allowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen width="640" height="360"></iframe> <script src="https://fast.wistia.net/assets/external/E-v1.js" async></script> <h3>Objectives</h3> <p>Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: <ul> <li>List the steps for properly transitioning from a multi-member LLC to a single-member LLC.</li> <li>Identify the tax consequences for the LLC and LLC members.</li> <li>Identify reporting requirements of the single-member LLC.</li> </ul> <h3>Course Details</h3> <p>This webinar includes the presentation slides, exam questions, live webinar recording with review questions, and Attendee Top Questions.

On-Demand WebinarEthics for Tax Preparers On-Demand Webinar<h3>Summary</h3> <p>Each year, tax preparers are presented with a number of ethical dilemmas, whether it be due to taxpayer actions or changes in tax law. The <i>Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act</i> (PATH) expanded due diligence requirements to cover more tax credits, including the Section 24 Child Tax Credit and the American Opportunity Tax Credit. This year, the requirements extend to claiming Head of Household filing status. <p>This webinar will review what you need to do to properly protect yourself, your practice and your clients, as well as what sorts of penalties the IRS imposes for ethical violations, by reviewing Circular 230 and the PATH Act.</p> <p>Circular 230 sets standards to prevent us from overstepping professional boundaries, including how to run your office, make decisions, determine what questions to ask clients and decide what records to rely on. By the end of this course, you will be able to identify the current IRS return preparer initiatives, preparer penalties and ethical standards important to tax return preparers.</p> <iframe src="https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/775105pad3" title="Practice Before the IRS Video" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" class="wistia_embed" name="wistia_embed" allowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen width="640" height="360"></iframe> <script src="https://fast.wistia.net/assets/external/E-v1.js" async></script><h3>Objectives</h3> <p>Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: <ul> <li>Summarize the key points of Circular 230, <i>Regulations Governing Practice before the Internal Revenue Service</i>.</li> <li>Summarize the key points of the PATH Act due diligence requirements and how they apply to taxpayers.</li> <li>Identify preparer penalties.</li> <li>Summarize how to handle real life situations that emphasize due diligence.</li> <li>Outline best practices to ensure compliance with the tax law and due diligence.</li> </ul> <h3>Course Details</h3> <p>This webinar includes the presentation slides, exam questions, and webinar recording with review questions.

On-Demand WebinarTax Reporting for Illegal Activities (Cannabis) On-Demand Webinar<h3>Summary</h3> <p>U.S. taxpayers are subject to tax on their worldwide income, even including income from illegal activities such as cannabis production and dispensing.

This is still where it remains today.
