The year 2020 has been a year like no other, and that goes for income tax planning as well. This month we kick off a 12-part webinar series, scheduled through 2021 in conjunction with six Southern California Dental Societies.
In this first of 12 sessions, we will explore what strategies dentists need to consider for 2020 and 2021 given the election results, including whether to defer or accelerate income and deductions, where we think tax laws might be going, deductibility of expenses paid from PPP funds and much more. In addition the Eide Bailly Research and Development Tax Credit team will explain how this generous federal and state income tax credit could apply to dental practices. Their work has generated thousands of dollars in tax credits for our clients.
