Tackling Taxes While IRS Weighs Extending Filing Deadline due to COVID-19
Even as tax preparers and advisors have been helping taxpayers to understand the changes enacted by the 2017 federal tax overhaul, now there is a new law affecting retirement planning, small businesses, and part-time workers. Meanwhile, Trump Administration officials and some Democratic Senators are asking the IRS to extend the filing deadline. One concern: Many taxpayer interactions occur in person, including at clinics for low-income taxpayers and assistance centers run by the IRS, raising concerns about potential exposure to COVID-19, now deemed a pandemic by the World Health Organization.
