We all find ourselves in extraordinary circumstances, coming together to ensure the health and safety of our employees and clients as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to escalate. We are receiving tax updates as they come out and wanted to pass along the latest information we’ve received, which includes details on the forthcoming Phase III stimulus package coming from Congress. It's a monster (that's a legislative technical term) and we'll be continuing to unpack it for you in the days to come.

The Treasury has extended the April 15th filing date to July 15th, giving individuals more time to file their tax returns and make payments given the limitations caused by the COVID-19 emergency. 

The provision also allows all individuals to postpone estimated tax payments due from the date of enactment until October 15, 2020. There is no cap on the amount of tax payments postponed, and any individual required to make estimated tax payments can take advantage of the postponement. This delay should increase the available cash flow for individuals experiencing cash shortfalls as a result of the COVID-19 emergency.

 

Congress has passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act: Congress has passed, and President Trump has signed, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The FFCR Act (1) requires certain employers to provide paid leave benefits to employees affected by the coronavirus outbreak; (2) expands unemployment benefits and offers grants to states to process and pay claims; and (3) mandates coverage of coronavirus testing with no cost-sharing. The FFCR Act also provides a payroll tax credit to employers that pay sick leave wages for qualified purposes. The credit for each employee equals up to 100% of his or her wages, limited to $511 per day for self-care, or $200 if the sick leave is to care for a family member or child whose school is closed. Businesses with more than 500 employees are exempt from the mandate to pay leave benefits. A third stimulus package is currently in congress.
