Specific changes to the 2021 tax laws (the American Rescue Plan Act or ARP) affect aspects of filing in regards to 2020 Unemployment, market-place health insurance, earned income credit, and the CARES act with possible other ramifications yet to be announced. Rather than progressing with completion and the likely need to file an amended return, we are reaching out to clients we have identified to be affected by new legislation. We will be reaching out to those affected after implications of Congressional changes are approved and explained in full to the National Association of Tax Professionals.

Every client is dear to us and your data is in good hands and we want to be diligent in ensuring you pay for ONE service, not two filings for 2020. Thank you for your patience during this time of uncertainty.
