Our top priority in this time of uncertainty is protecting the health and safety of our employees, clients, friends and families. Our office will remain open, but we are primarily working remotely. Essential personnel are in the building, but in their own isolated suites. We believe it is prudent to limit in-person meetings and settlement conferences during this time. Currently, the best way to communicate with us is through emails and telephone calls. Be assured that our technology allows us to provide the same seamless service you would have if everyone were here in person. If an in-person meeting is required, we are strictly adhering to CDC Guidelines. We are posting regular updates on how COVID-19 affects family law issues on our blog and our Facebook page.

Tax Relief for Business Owners During COVID-19 Crisis

Business owners should check out a new option for immediate tax relief. If your business was profitable at one point, but suffered losses in 2018 and 2019, you can amend your business tax returns to offset your taxable profits going back five years. This could produce an immediate refund. 

Here is the icing on the cake: Before the CARES Act, you could only offset losses against future profits and not past profits. Prior to the tax reform legislation, the business tax rate was much higher (as much as 35%), instead of the 21% rate that applies to future profits. That means more dollars can be deducted and more money goes into your pocket. 

Check with your tax advisor for advice on your specific circumstances.

This blog is intended to just highlight the various rescue programs that may be available to you and is not intended to substitute for professional tax or legal advice. The McCarthy Law Firm is not a tax or accounting firm. Additionally, there are detailed regulations concerning each person’s eligibility and terms of repayment. Please check with your tax advisor and/or your accountant regarding your specific situation.
