Passthrough Entity SALT Cap Workaround is Messy!

The $10,000 SALT cap enacted as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 has policy flaws. I have written about this a few times in recent years (7/4/19, 9/21/18) and in a few AICPA comment letters I signed as chair of the Tax Executive Committee (such as 11/10/17). The policy flaws include:1. Why are C corps the only business entity allowed to fully deduct their state and local business taxes?

Omicron Variant Will Create More Uncertainty for Employers

It’s been 22 months since my first post on the COVID-19 pandemic.  Looking back on that first post way back on January 22, 2020, is more than a little strange.  It was couched with a lot of “it’s still too early to know” language like this: “While it seems too early to implement any measures in the United States at present, employers may want to at least start having conversations about the “what ifs” with the novel coronavirus.” I was thinking about that as news over the last 48 hours broke of...

Just like this ground breaking daylily, which has hemerocallis enthusiasts on the boil. ...

This year is no different in many ways.  We’ve been through a lot in the last year and we seem headed for yet another wave here in Connecticut ...
