    The Internal Revenue Service on Jan. 11 released 2013 tax tables and other inflation adjustments that reflect changes made by the American Taxpayer Relief Act. The inflation-adjusted numbers include the personal exemption and standard deduction amounts, the unified credit against the estate tax, and the alternative minimum tax exemption. Various credit amounts are also updated. Read this JournalofAccountancy.com article for more information.

    Use the client letters in the AICPA’s Tax Practitioner’s Toolkit to answer questions that your individual or small business clients may have about what is in the new American Taxpayer Relief Act. The AICPA will also be releasing (in the coming weeks) a brochure that highlights tax issues that affect taxpayers for the current filing season. These letters are also on the AICPA’s fiscal cliff page along with news, analysis and web events to help you navigate the new law.
