Don't wait until January to try to get up to speed on the new tax laws. With so many new laws and so many changes to those new laws, it's imperative that we stay on top of them so we can answer our clients' questions now as well as offer better tax planning advice. We'll cover the tax aspects and the implications of the new laws and programs -- the CARES Act, COVID-19 relief, the SECURE Act, PPP and EIDL loans, new payroll tax deferrals -- and provide tax-planning tips.
