This topic includes many elections many taxpayers may not think about as well as elections we know are elections, such as: Accrual method of reporting interest from US Savings Bonds, Mark-to-market election for traders, Section 179, Bonus depreciation, Out of installment reporting, Out of treating interest when secured by personal residence (allowing tracing), Treating trust or estate distributions in first 65 days as if they took place in the prior year, and Repair regulation elections.

Midseason Tax Update – This program contains federal tax law changes; new regulations and other IRS releases such as Notices, Announcements, Revenue Rulings, and Revenue Rulings; and recent court cases from US Tax Court and other Courts dealing with tax matters.” Many of the cases used will be ones that provoke discussion.
