We are closing in on the finish to one of the more unique years any of us have encountered.
Due to the Covid-19 financial impact on governmental operations; they are experiencing decreasing cash in-flows and increasing out-flows.  As a result, I have seen a rise in non-compliance penalties and interest assessments.
Timely and accurate tax compliance reporting and payments are essential to avoid penalties and interest in 2021.
Reaching out to connect on your 2020 tax reporting obligations.
Effective tax planning topics remain similar with one-time 2020 opportunities to consider around the following:
