The Journal of Accountancy podcast discusses the key issues facing the accounting profession.

Jan 28, 2021

Earlier, Eileen Sherr, CPA, CGMA, MT, a director of the AICPA’s Tax Policy & Advocacy team, discussed prospects for reversing by legislation the IRS’s position regarding deductibility of business expenses paid with loan proceeds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) that are ultimately forgiven. Now, that legislation has been enacted, by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA), P.L. 116-260. Sherr returns to outline that and other changes. Plus, we look ahead to possible developments during 2021 in tax legislation and pandemic relief.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • What the CAA resolved regarding deductibility of business expenses paid by loan proceeds from the PPP, along with other AICPA advocacy priorities — and what remains unresolved.
  • Possible emphases for tax legislation going forward from the Biden administration and the new Congress.
  • Ongoing pandemic-related tax relief measures and advocacy at the federal and state levels.
