I shared this with Butler businesses - it is related to taxes.  I also sent out two other emails on tax related issues which I will see if I can find again.

The IRS has signaled it will bless a workaround that allows small-business owners to skirt the $10,000 cap on state and local income tax deductions.

States have also been hammering out another workaround, this time using pass-through entities, which include S-corporations, some limited liability companies and partnerships. 

The IRS has just greenlighted this move, according to a notice from the agency issued last week.

This workaround took effect in seven states after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and Wisconsin, according to the American Institute of CPAs.

Thank you!  I hope they consider putting out some help with PPL loans and taxes this year.  Several small business owners are being impacted by the loan, which will likely be forgiven, but it won't be by year end tax cutoff.  Is this profit that is taxable?  Is this a cash inflow and offsetting liability?  How does that impact taxes?  Very unclear.  That said--this is great, especially the online sales issues, which are for many, new this year....

Taxation University is open for business in 2021!


We are available to conduct live virtual small business workshops hosted by your library between March 1st and May 31st. We will also offer recorded virtual workshops in Spanish.
