CPAR - 2021/June, Seg 4 - Proposals for the American Families Plan - The Devil Is in the Details

On April 28, 2021, President Biden released a fact sheet on his just-proposed changes to the tax system, the American Families Plan. The American Families Plan would make some dramatic tax changes. There have been several discussions about items in this proposal since its release. The 15-page document details more than just tax proposals, but it is important to remember that this document is just that; it is still a proposal. It is unclear how much Congressional support would exist for passing the proposal "as is," and historically, there have always been modifications. Barbara Weltman, president of Big Ideas for Small Business focuses on the tax developments and discusses parts of the plan relating to business and individual tax credits and benefits.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the changes in individual tax credits under the American Families Plan;
  • Identify the major ARPA changes with respect to COBRA rules, Advance Premium Tax credit, and employment taxes;
  • Understand the tax developments with respect to life insurance; and
  • Identify the changes IRS made on PPP expense deductibility.

Work experience in tax planning or tax compliance, or an introductory course in taxation.
