This week we look at:

 

  • President declares emergency over COVID-19, directs Treasury to provide relief--and now we are waiting.
  • HR 6201 passes the House and moves on to the Senate, containing a few tax provisions mainly related to mandatory sick leave provision rule
  • AICPA letter issued to IRS regarding the informal §199A guidance the agency has issued
  • HDHPs are allowed to pay for COVID-19 testing and treatment without jeopardizing ability of insured to make HSA contributions.
  • Dropping a tax document in the mailbox turns out not to be a good idea, as USPS postmark was after the private postmark date on envelope
