Families First Coronavirus Response Bill

The US House of Representatives approved Families First Coronavirus Response Bill could provide $15 million to worth of tax credits for paid sick, family, and medical leave. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin stated that "this bill will provide significant relief to small businesses that cannot afford the employee costs associated with coronavirus.... The bill provides a dollar for dollar reimbursement for coronavirus related sick leave costs. To protect businesses concerned about cash flow, the Treasury will use its regulatory authority to advance funds to employers in a number of ways," Furthermore he added. "Employers will be able to use cash deposited with the IRS to pay sick leave wages. Additionally, for businesses that would not have sufficient taxes to draw from, Treasury will use its regulatory authority to make advances to small businesses to cover such costs."

President Announces 90 Day Extension to Pay

As part of Coronavirus relief, President Donald Trump announced a 90-day extension for Individuals and Corporations to pay certain tax payments. Critically: at this time, it may be that this is only an extension to pay, and not an extension to file. There is much that is unknown, and we are seeking guidance from the IRS. However, it was announced that the IRS will not invoke penalties and interest on tax payments under $1 million for individuals and $10 million for corporations.

It is our recommendation that taxpayers make their best efforts to get us relevant 2019 tax year information as soon as possible.

As stated before, we are strongly encouraging clients, who have the ability, to send their tax information. Many state returns will not match the extended federal due date.
