This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax professionals and advisers with guidance on the new American Rescue Plan Act. The panel will discuss essential next steps for taxpayers, obtaining the employee retention payroll tax credit, key issues for self employment taxes, rules for NOLs, and other key items in light of the new relief bill.


On Mar. 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (the Act), which provides various tax provisions impacting both business and individual taxpayers. Tax professionals and advisers must identify key provisions and related challenges and implement strategies for taxpayers.

The Act provides pandemic relief funding for individuals, businesses, and state and local governments, including a new "Restaurant Revitalization Fund" and a new round of Paycheck Protection Program funding. It also expands the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, and the Employee Retention Credit.

Tax professionals must acquire detailed knowledge of certain tax provisions impacting taxpayers, challenges in obtaining available credits and deductions, reporting requirements, and other key items.
