A message from our CEO, Richard Landis

To our valued clients,

In these times of uncertainty, we want you to know that the safety and health of our clients and staff are always a top priority. We understand that with the rapidly changing updates on travel restrictions, school closings, and cancelled public events due to the outbreak of the pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19), many people are worried about the health of their loved ones. We cannot stress enough that we take the well-being of our clients and staff seriously. Now more than ever, our business is you.

Our office is taking precautions to minimize exposure to this rapidly spreading virus. As much as we look forward to this time of year when we can greet our clients face-to-face and make personal connections, it is with you in mind that we are limiting office visits at this time.

IN-OFFICE MEETINGS

Until further notice, we will no longer hold in-office meetings. We sincerely regret the need to discontinue this personalized service and offer the following alternatives:

  1. Zoom Video Meeting (preferred)
    • A Zoom meeting allows us to meet face-to-face through a virtual on-line connection.
    • Zoom also allows screen sharing. It is our preferred alternative method of meeting due to the amount of personalization and flexibility it allows. Zoom meetings are the nextbest-thing to an in-office appointment. You can access Zoom from any device with an internet connection.
  2. Phone Call
    • If a stable internet connection is not available, we are happy to conference by telephone.
  3. No Meeting
    • We love to meet with the people we serve, but a meeting is not always necessary. The majority of our clients submit their documents without meeting. Any questions or concerns we may have about your documents can easily be handled through Liscio or by telephone.

SUBMITTING AND RECEIVING TAX DOCUMENTS

Until further notice, we kindly request that documents are not dropped off or picked up at the office. The World Health Organization has suggested that COVID-19 can persist on surfaces for up to several days. This not only includes our door handles, desks, chairs, bathroom, etc., but also any papers that are exchanged between us. We recognize our local clients enjoy stopping by to complete transactions and offer the following convenient alternatives:

  1. LISCIO (preferred)
    • Most of our clients are already using Liscio to send and receive documents and to communicate with us. With Liscio, submitting documents is as easy as snapping a picture with your cell phone and uploading documents via the mobile app.
  2. Fax
    • Faxing documents may be an option to quickly transfer forms or other information if Liscio is not preferred. Fax transmissions are not as reliable as Liscio uploads, so if you choose to fax your documents, please make sure your fax machine has confirmed successful transmission. Our fax number is 717-393-8342.
  3. Mail
    • For clients who do not have access to the internet or fax, you are welcome to mail your documents into our office. Local clients who typically pick up their return from the office should expect their returns in the mail this year. Please remember to mail back your signed 8879 Authorization to Electronically Transmit Tax Return forms promptly. We expect any potential virus cells will become inactive during document transfers.

We apologize for any inconvenience these temporary safely precautions may cause. If you feel these procedures are a burden that requires an extension, please contact our office as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding and agree that no tax deadline is more important than precious human life. Thank you for supporting us in our efforts to protect our clients and employees. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) forgiveness update - 11/24/20

On November 18, 2020, the Department of Treasury issued more clarifications regarding the deductibility of expenses paid with PPP funds that are ultimately forgiven. The Revenue Ruling 2020-27 clarified that expenses will be non-deductible for Tax Year 2020 as long as the taxpayer “reasonably expects” that there will be debt forgiveness on the loan—even if forgiveness isn’t determined by the end of the year.

Many PPP lenders are now accepting applications for forgiveness. Please note that Congress may still make changes to this ruling as senate finance committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and ranking member Ron Wyden (D-OR) issued a bi-partisan statement calling on the Department of Treasury to reconsider this position.

Remember, we are here to help! Forgiveness application submission is not a simple task. We can assist you to ensure your application is accurate and that you put yourself in the best position to gain maximum loan forgiveness.

Easier Loan Forgiveness Application for PPP loans of $50k or less - 10/09/20

On October 8, 2020, the Department of Treasury introduced an easier Loan Forgiveness Application for businesses that received PPP loans of $50,000 or less. This new application does not require any calculations for Loan Forgiveness and borrowers are not subject to any wage or FTE reductions. All relevant payroll reports and records of other qualified expenses should still be kept on file, as they could be requested in the future by the SBA.

Links are provided below to access these new, simpler forms. Our firm is here to help if you have questions about your PPP Loan Forgiveness.

SBA Beginning to Accept PPP Loan Forgiveness Applications - 08/10/20

Beginning August 10, 2020, the SBA will begin accepting PPP loan forgiveness applications. While August 10 is the date set by the SBA, it is important to check with your lender, as many lenders may have set their own unique date for accepting forgiveness applications.

It’s also important to note that there is pending legislation in Washington that could allow automatic forgiveness of loans that are $150,000 or less. At this time, there is no guarantee the legislation will pass.

We will continue to monitor the situation and work to keep clients updated.

Paycheck Protection Program Update - 06/15/2020

As promised, we have kept a close watch on new legislation that affects the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and have an important update for you.

Recent legislation (titled HR7010) has passed, offering adjustments to PPP loans—particularly regarding forgiveness calculations. Key changes are as follows:

  • Covered time period extended—The period of time to use loan money has been extended from 8 to 24 weeks. This means that you have more time to apply funds to qualified expenses that maximize loan forgiveness.
  • Social Security payments deferred—Originally under the Cares Act, employers who received the PPP Loan could not also defer employer social security tax payments. HR7010 adjusted this. Now, any employer with social security payments due between March 27, 2020 and December 31, 2020 can pay half of the amount due by the end of 2021 and the remainder by the end of 2022.
  • Loan payment deferral extended—The original 6-month deferral for repayment of PPP loans has been extended to 10 months. Payments are only required on the amount of the loan that is not forgiven.
  • Payroll threshold adjusted—Originally, the Department of Treasury and the SBA determined that 75 percent of a PPP loan had to be used for payroll in order for the loan to be forgiven. The 75 percent threshold has been adjusted to 60 percent. In a statement on 06/08, Treasury clarified "If a borrower uses less than 60 percent of the loan amount for payroll costs during the forgiveness covered period, the borrower will continue to be eligible for partial loan forgiveness, subject to at least 60 percent of the loan forgiveness amount having been used for payroll costs." This means that borrowers are still eligible for partial loan forgiveness even if they use less than 60% of the loan amount for payroll costs.
  • Safe harbor date extended—The original Cares Act included safe harbor exceptions to restore or attempt to restore full-time employees and any pay reductions by June 30, 2020. These exceptions still exist, but the date to restore has been adjusted to December 31, 2020.
  • Loan term date extended—All new PPP loans effective after the passing of HR7010 will have a five-year term. Businesses that received a loan prior to the new legislation can adjust the loan term from two to five years. Individuals will need to work with their lender to amend loan terms.

We hope this update helps. Again, we will continue to closely monitor new legislation and inform you on the key changes that may affect your PPP loan.

Tax Update announcement - 04/10/2020

IRS extends additional federal tax deadlines to cover individuals, trusts, estates, corporations and others

Last month, the IRS announced that taxpayers have until July 15, 2020 to file and pay federal income taxes (originally due on April 15, 2020). On April 9, 2020, the IRS expanded this tax relief effort to additional returns, tax payments and other actions.

As a result, extensions generally now apply to all taxpayers that have a filing or payment deadline falling on or after April 1, 2020 and before July 15, 2020. Individuals, trusts, estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers qualify for the extension. This means that anyone, including Americans who live and work abroad, can now wait until July 15, 2020 to file their 2019 federal income tax return and pay due taxes.

Estimated tax payments

Additionally, any individual or corporation with a quarterly estimated tax payment due on or after April 1, 2020 and before July 15, 2020, can wait until July 15, 2020 to make a payment—without penalty. This means that estimates normally due June 15, 2020 are now due one month later on July 15, 2020.

Extension of time to file beyond July 15

Individual taxpayers who need additional time to file beyond the July 15 deadline can request an extension to October 15, 2020.

Note: This is an extension to file the tax return. It is not an extension to pay taxes owed. Taxes owed are still due by the July 15, 2020 deadline.

CARES Act for businesses update - 04/03/2020

March 29, 2020 - last updated (04/03/2020)

The following represents a summary of the recently signed into law CARES Act—also referred to as the Stimulus Package. Specifically, we are providing a summary of the Paycheck Protection Program.

Title 1 of the CARES Act, entitled “Keeping American Workers Paid and Employed Act,” provides relief for small businesses and their employees who are adversely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. The key provision in this Act is the Paycheck Protection Program—an emergency lending facility to provide small business loans on favorable terms to borrowers impacted by the current economic state.

PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM – KEY POINTS

The following offers highlights of the Paycheck Protection Program that small business owners need to be aware of and consider as they move forward:

  • Available to businesses with 500 employees or less.
  • Loan period ranges from February 15, 2020 through June 30, 2020.
  • Loan amount equates to 2.5 times average monthly payroll expenses for 12 months prior to the loan origination—up to $10 million.
  • Loan interest rate is 1.0% (Treasury changed from 0.5% on 04/02/2020.)
  • Loan duration is 2 years. (Treasury changed from a max of 10 years on 03/31/2020.)
  • Loan forgiveness is available—A borrower is eligible for loan forgiveness equal to the amount spent on the following items, during the eight-week period beginning on the loan origination date:
    • Payroll costs
    • Mortgage interest incurred in the ordinary course of business
    • Rent paid based on a leasing agreement
    • Payments for utilities—including electricity, gas, water, transportation, telephone or internet
    • Additional wages paid to tipped employees
      Note: The loan forgiveness amount can be reduced if there is a reduction in the number of employees or a reduction of greater than 25% in wages paid to employees.
  • Note: The loan forgiveness amount can be reduced if there is a reduction in the number of employees or a reduction of greater than 25% in wages paid to employees.

    Note: To have loan amounts fully forgiven, at least 75% of forgiveness amount calculated must be for payroll costs. (This is a NEW requirement from the Treasury as of 03/31/2020.)

  • Collateral is not required to secure the loan.
  • No personal guarantee is required to secure the loan.
  • Loan repayments are automatically deferred for six months and up to one year. This includes interest, fees and loan principal.
  • Payment Protection Program loans are applied for through approved banks. The SBA may administer some loans based on viability.
  • For businesses that have been denied SBA loans previously, lending requirements are more lenient.

CARES ACT – ADDITIONAL KEY POINTS

Employee Retention Payroll Tax Credit

  • The Employee Retention Payroll Tax Credit cannot be used in conjunction with the Payroll Protection Program or any other loan where payroll costs are forgiven.
  • Employee retention credit is equal to 50% of qualified wages with a cap of $10,000 wages. Maximum credit per employee is $5000.
  • The employer’s gross receipts must be 50% or less than the same calendar quarter in 2019 to qualify.
  • For employers with 100 or less employees, qualified wages are defined as wages paid for all employees during the period—whether they were able to work or not. For employers with 100 or more employees, qualified wages are defined as wages paid to employees not providing services.

Deferral of Employer Social Security Taxes

The deferral of employer social security taxes cannot be used in conjunction with the Payroll Protection Program. This allows an employer to defer their portion of Social Security taxes from March 27, 2020 to January 1, 2021. 50% is due by December 31, 2021 and the remainder by December 31, 2022.

Bonus Depreciation

This allows employers to expense qualified improvement property under the section 168 bonus depreciation rules.

CARES Act for individuals update - 03/28/2020

March 28, 2020

The following represents a summary of the recently signed into law CARES Act—also referred to as the Stimulus Package.

RECOVERY CHECKS – KEY POINTS

Recovery check distribution amounts—Single taxpayers will receive $1,200 and joint taxpayers will receive $2,400. There is an additional $500 for each qualifying child.

The recovery check is considered a credit for 2020, but paid in advance.

The amount is reduced (but not below zero) by 5% of each dollar a person’s adjusted gross income (AGI) exceeds. Consider the following:

  • Married filing joint: $150,000 (AGI over $198,000 does not qualify)
  • Head of household: $112,500 (AGI over $146,500 does not qualify)
  • Single: $75,000 (AGI over $99,000 does not qualify)

Consider the following example:

  • A married couple with no children has an AGI of $190,000.
  • $190,000 is $40,000 above the $150,000 amount shown above.
  • The couple’s check is reduced by 5% of $40,000, which is $2000.
  • Therefore, they would receive a check for $400. (i.e., $2400 - $2000 = $400)

Other key details for recovery check eligibility include:

  • Nonresident aliens are not eligible for the rebate.
  • If a taxpayer has an outstanding debt (which the IRS would typically offset a refund by paying that debt), recovery dollars will not be used to offset that debt.
  • Amount will be direct deposited into the account on the last filed return. Every taxpayer will receive a letter indicating their recovery check was dispersed. If the letter is not received, there will be a specific phone number to call to have the check re-issued.
  • AGI will be accessed from 2019 returns if filed at the time of determination. Otherwise, 2018 returns will be used. Taxpayers who have not filed a return will not receive a check unless they did not file because they only have SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 (social security). The Treasury Department will review those forms for 2019 and issue the appropriate amount via check.

UNEMPLOYMENT – KEY POINTS

Any employee who was furloughed or part of a layoff is eligible for state unemployment. Details are as follows:

  • Unemployment amount via the state typically ranges from 30-50% of the standard wage, depending on the state.
  • The amount a person will receive for unemployment over four months will be the amount the state would already provide, but increased by $600 per week through July 31, 2020. For example, if a person is eligible for $300 weekly, they will receive $900 per week over four months or through July 31, 2020, whichever comes first.
  • If an employee is already unemployed due to COVID-19, the $600 weekly additional payment will be paid retroactively.
  • Self employed individuals, independent contractors, and gig workers are eligible for unemployment under this program.

RETIREMENT DISTRIBUTIONS – KEY POINTS

Ability to withdraw up to $100,000 retirement in 2020 for COVID-19-related purposes without 10% penalty—The distribution is taxable over a 3-year period unless electing to pay it back within 3 years. This essentially equates to a loan unless it is not paid back within the 3-year timeframe. This rule applies to individuals:

  • Diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Who have family (spouse or dependent) who have been diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Who have adverse financial consequences in relation to COVID-19
  • Who include the distribution in taxable income (unless they elect the 3-year payback)

Waived required minimum distributions (RMD) from individual retirement accounts—The required minimum distribution for 2020 has been waived.

This also applies to retirees who turned 70 1/2 in 2019 and are required to take their RMD by 4/1/20. If the retiree that turned 70 1/2 in 2019 still intends to take their RMD, this must happen by April 1, 2020—otherwise, the same penalty for late withdrawal will be applied.

CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS - KEY POINTS

Above-the-line charitable contribution—For tax year 2020, if a taxpayer does not itemize deductions, they can deduct up to $300 in addition to standard deduction for cash charitable contributions (no stock contributions).

Charitable contribution limitation by AGI—The 60% adjusted gross income limitation has been removed for 2020 (other than from donor advised funds).

Tax Update announcement - 03/27/2020

In an effort to provide continued clarity around changes to tax law, we are offering this update to our previous tax announcements. As such, we have removed a few of our previous tax update posts.

Below, you will find a list of frequently asked questions in reference to the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Notice 2020-18 (PDF). In this Notice, the Treasury Department and the IRS announced special Federal income tax return filing and payment relief in response to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency.

You can review the IRS page for additional information here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for relief under the Notice?

Any person with a Federal income tax return or payment due on April 15, 2020 is eligible for relief under the Notice. “Person” includes any type of taxpayer such as an individual, a trust, an estate, a corporation or any type of unincorporated business entity. The payment due refers to both 2019 Federal income tax payments (including payments of tax on self-employment income) and 2020 estimated Federal income tax payments (including payments of tax on self-employment income)—regardless of the amount owed. The return or payment must be due on April 15, 2020—this relief does not apply to Federal income tax returns and payments due on any other date.

Do I have to actually be sick, quarantined or have any other impact from COVID-19 to qualify for payment relief?

No, you do not have to be sick, quarantined or have any other impact from COVID-19 to qualify for relief. You only need to have a Federal income tax return or payment due on April 15, 2020 as described above.

I am a fiscal year filer. My Federal income tax return for fiscal year 2019 is due on April 15, 2020. Am I an “Affected Taxpayer” eligible for relief under the Notice?

Yes, the relief provided in the Notice applies to Federal income tax returns and payments in respect of an Affected Taxpayer’s 2019 taxable year and postpones those 2019 return filings and payments due on April 15, 2020 until July 15, 2020. If your Federal income tax return for your fiscal year ending during 2019 is due on April 15, 2020, whether that is the original due date or the due date on extension, your due date is postponed to July 15, 2020.

Does this relief apply to state tax liabilities?

No, this relief applies only to Federal income tax payments. State filing and payment deadlines vary and are not always the same as the Federal filing and payment deadline. We urge you to check with your state tax agencies for those details. More information is available here.

I haven’t filed my 2019 income tax return yet (that would have been due on April 15), but I expect to file it by July 15. What do I need to do?

Nothing, except file and pay any tax due with your return by July 15. You don’t need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for this automatic Federal tax filing and payment relief. If you expect a refund, you are encouraged to file your return as soon as you can so that you can receive your refund. Filing electronically with direct deposit is the quickest way to get refunds. If you need more time beyond July 15 to file your return, request an automatic extension of time to file as described next.

What if I am unable to file my 2019 income tax return (that would have been due on April 15) by July 15, 2020?

If you are an individual, you can request an automatic extension to file your Federal income tax return if you can’t file by the July 15, 2020 deadline. The easiest and fastest way to request a filing extension is to electronically file Form 4868 through your tax professional, tax software or using the Free File link on IRS.gov. Businesses, including trusts, must file Form 7004.

You must request the automatic extension by July 15, 2020. If you properly estimate your 2019 tax liability using the information available to you and file an extension form by July 15, 2020, your tax return will be due on October 15, 2020. To avoid interest and penalties when filing your tax return after July 15, 2020, pay the tax you estimate as due with your extension request.

I already filed my 2019 income tax return (that would have been due on April 15) and I owe taxes, but I haven’t paid yet. What do I need to do to avoid interest and penalties?

To avoid interest and penalties, pay your taxes in full by July 15, 2020. If you filed Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR, the tax payment amount can be found on line 23. If you filed Form 1040-NR, the tax payment amount can be found on line 75. For a corporation filing Form 1120, the tax payment amount can be found on line 35.

Interest and penalties will begin to be charged after July 15 for any amount remaining unpaid by that date.

I already filed my 2019 income tax return that would have been due on April 15 and scheduled a payment of taxes for April 15, 2020. Will this payment be automatically rescheduled to July 15, 2020?

No, the payment will not be automatically rescheduled to July 15, 2020. If you do nothing, the payment will be made on the date you chose. Here is information on how to cancel and reschedule your payment:

  • If you scheduled a payment through IRS Direct Pay, you can use your confirmation number from the payment to access the “Look Up a Payment” feature. You can modify or cancel a scheduled payment until two business days before the payment date. The email notification you received when you scheduled the payment will contain the confirmation number.
  • If you scheduled a payment through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), click on “Payments” from the EFTPS home page, login, click “Cancel a Tax Payment” from the left menu and follow the instructions. You must do so at least two business days before the scheduled payment date.
  • If you scheduled a payment as part of filing your tax return (authorizing an electronic funds withdrawal), you may revoke (cancel) your payment by contacting the U.S. Treasury Financial Agent at 888-353-4537. You must call to make a payment cancellation request no later than 11:59 p.m. ET two business days prior to the scheduled payment date.
  • If you scheduled a payment by credit card or debit card, contact the card processor to cancel the payment.

The Notice postpones the deadline for first quarter 2020 estimated income tax payments due on April 15, 2020. What about second quarter estimated tax payments due on June 15? Have they been postponed as well?

No, second quarter 2020 estimated income tax payments are still due on June 15, 2020. First quarter 2020 estimated income tax payments are postponed from April 15 to July 15, 2020.

Does this relief provide me more time to contribute money to my IRA for 2019?

Yes. Contributions can be made to your IRA for a particular year at any time during the year or by the due date for filing your return for that year. Because the due date for filing Federal income tax returns has been postponed to July 15, 2020, the deadline for making contributions to your IRA for 2019 is also extended to July 15, 2020. For more details on IRA contributions, see Publication 590-A - Contributions to Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs).

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) expanded to provide relief to those affected by COVID-19

March 20, 2020

“The Families First Coronavirus Response Act” (FFCRA), which goes into effect April 2, 2020 and expires December 31, 2020, responds to the coronavirus outbreak by providing additional assistance in the areas of COVID-19 testing, sick leave, food assistance and more. We’ve compiled key details of FFCRA that we believe you need to know.

In summary, the Act:

  • Requires private insurance plans to provide free COVID-19 testing.
  • Requires employers to provide emergency paid sick leave to workers affected by COVID-19 and expands family and medical leave.
  • Offers increased funding for state unemployment insurance, food stamp and nutritional programs.

More specifically, here’s what FFCRA means for both business owners and employees in the areas of sick leave and expanded family and medical leave.

  • Employees are eligible for up to two weeks of sick leave (full pay for self, 2/3 pay for family care) for illness, quarantine or school closures.
  • Employees are eligible for up to 12 weeks of FMLA leave for school closures (10 days unpaid and then up to 10 weeks at 2/3 pay).

  • Emergency paid sick leave covers:
    • Employers with fewer than 500 employees.
    • All employees no matter the length of employment (some exclusions may apply).
  • Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees may qualify for exemption from the requirement to provide leave due to school closings or child care unavailability if the leave requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern.

Department of Labor Links:

  • FFCRA: Questions and Answers
  • As part of the FFCRA, employers are required to provide notice to employees of the Act’s provisions. An example of the required notice has been made available by the Department of Labor and can be downloaded here: FFCRA NOTICE TO EMPLOYEES.
