Year-End Tax Update and Planning: Looking Back at 2020, Getting Ready for 2021 (X1-YETU-2020-01-WEBNR-350-01)

1:30 PM - 5:00 PM EST


Webcast , NJ

4.0 CPE Credits in TX


2020 has been a year that tax practitioners could never have anticipated, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic devastation. Attempts to alleviate COVID-19's damage to the economy included a host of tax changes impacting both individuals and businesses. Tax practitioners now find themselves concerned with PPP loan forgiveness, 5-year NOL carrybacks, and much more. But, much like the COVID-19 virus itself, many of these programs may not go away with the new year but may be extended into 2021 in an attempt to revive and sustain the economy for the long term. In addition, many of the changes included in The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act are now scheduled to start up in 2021, and President-elect Biden will assume office in January with his own tax reform agenda that could be enacted in and impact part or all of 2021.
