Marital Status and the Adoption Credits, Moving Expenses and Gain on Sale of Main Home
In Marital Status, the goal is to identify which acts constitute consideration of marriage, as well as the benefits and consequences of obtaining married status.

In certain circumstances, like adoption of a spouse's child, marital status can create adverse effects. In addition, this course identifies how to treat income from the sale of a main home, and how to handle moving expenses following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA).
