Biden Administration’s $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Plan Outlined
Posted by Bill Smith on Thu, Jan 28, 2021 @ 06:17 PM

The new Biden administration has many priorities and some ambitious goals. Perhaps none is more immediate than an additional stimulus package to mitigate the deepening impact of a pandemic that has dragged on for nearly a year. After months of declines, initial jobless claims rose again in December to 782,000, which remains above the previous record of 665,000 set in March 2009 (excluding years prior to 1967 when unemployment was measured differently). State legislatures may also implement additional spending cuts in the coming months that could also lead to deleterious effects on unemployment.

With these challenges in mind, it is time to look at the Biden administration’s “American Rescue Plan” to aid in the economic recovery.

4 Tax and Legislative Developments to Monitor in the New Legislative Session
Posted by Bill Smith on Wed, Jan 13, 2021 @ 12:44 PM

Amid a chaotic week in Washington D.C., final election results came in that determined the composition of the Senate. Both Georgia Senate seats went to the Democratic candidates, which tipped the balance of power in the Senate to the Democratic party, with Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris presiding as the presumed tie-breaking vote in a chamber evenly split 50-50. This assumes that the Senate Democrats vote along party lines, which is far from certain.

The Impact of the New Tax Law on Pass-Through Entities
Posted by Claudia Mullen on Tue, Mar 27, 2018 @ 07:06 PM

If there are winners and losers under the new tax reform law, pass-through entities—S corporations, partnerships, LLCs, and sole proprietorships (collectively, pass-through entities)—can count themselves among the winners. The tax reform law introduced as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) is primarily designed to provide tax cuts for businesses of all types, and it delivers on that goal. It also adds complexity, and in some circumstances, the potential tax savings for C corporations may outpace the savings afforded to pass-through entities. This formerly unorthodox scenario and many other new provisions for pass-through entities require careful study to ascertain the full impact of TCJA on such businesses.

The Impact of Tax Reform on Private Equity and Venture Capital Companies
Posted by Scott Costa on Thu, Feb 8, 2018 @ 03:09 PM

The new tax law introduced as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) includes considerable changes to the Internal Revenue Code that will impact the private equity and venture capital industries. The majority of the changes are effective Jan. 1, 2018, but some of the changes will have an impact on 2017 taxes as well. Private equity and venture capital firms should understand how the changes will impact their business, including the impact to their funds, investors, underlying investments, current and future tax structuring, as well as their management company. Firms should develop a course of action to address the changes imposed by the TCJA that will affect areas such as effective tax rates, preferred operating and acquisition structures, and the potential need for additional K-1 disclosure.
