• U.S. House Panel Advances Estate-Tax Repeal

    Bloomberg) The 99-year-old U.S. estate tax would disappear under a bill approved Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee. The legislation, backed on a 22-10 party-line vote, would benefit about 5,500 families who pay the tax each year plus thousands of others who organize their finances to avoid the 40 percent tax on estates upon death. It would deprive the U.S. government of $269 billion in revenue over a decade.

  • Affordable Healthcare Act & Key Tax Issues: An Industry Update

    4/22/2015 - Livonia, MI
    Affordable Care - What to Expect in 2015? - Although the Employer Mandate has been pushed back to 2015 and 2016, depending on your size, the Administration remains adamant that there will be no delay, postponement, extension or waiver of the Individual Mandate. - Since January 2014, millions of Americans have been accruing the Individual Mandate Penalty month by month. ALL tax return filers must prove adequate health insurance in place, claim an exemption or report and pay the penalty. Those who signed up for coverage on the exchange will also need to reconcile premium subsidies with actual income, and repay any excess subsidy.-While some employer obligations have been delayed to 2016, the Employer Mandate and its penalty for “large employers” begins in January 2015. Even mid-sized and borderline small employers should begin compiling their employee census information now. The IRS has assured Congress that it will not be the enforcer of healthcare reform. According to the House Ways and Means Committee, complying with healthcare reform will require nearly 80 million hours. Most of this burden will fall on businesses - YOU! This course will help you cope with avalanche of IRS regulations, revenue procedures and rulings that impact you and your business.
