As the 2020 election draws near, Congress and the Administration face a final opportunity to respond to the economic crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Tax changes involving a combination of immediate cash flow and longer-term investment relief have been enacted and more could be under consideration. Join us as we examine what has and could still be done before and after the election and the planning that will be necessary to maximize the benefits and minimize the potential pitfalls created by that legislation. We will also discuss what could happen after the election and how to prepare for changes to come.
