    The Treasury Department and IRS issue Final Regulations regarding Like-kind Exchanges of Real Property | site |


    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release: November 23, 2020)

    WASHINGTON – Today the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service issued final regulations relating to section 1031 like-kind exchanges.

  • Treasury and IRS Issue Guidance Clarifying the Deductibility of Expenses Where a Business Received a PPP Loan

    Treasury and IRS Issue Guidance Clarifying the Deductibility of Expenses Where a Business Received a PPP Loan | site |


    (Information contained in U.S. Department of the Treasury press release: November 18, 2020) WASHINGTON – The U.S. Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released guidance today clarifying the tax treatment of expenses where a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan has not been forgiven by the end of the year the loan was received. Since businesses are not taxed on the proceeds of a forgiven PPP loan, the expenses are not deductible. This results in neither a tax benefit nor tax harm since the taxpayer has not paid anything out of pocket. If a business reasonably believes that a PPP loan will be forgiven in the future, expenses related to the loan are not deductible, whether the business has filed for forgiveness or not. Therefore, we encourage businesses to file for forgiveness as soon as possible. In the case where a PPP loan was expe...
