List of Expiring Tax Provisions 2020-2029

The Joint Committee on Taxation is a nonpartisan committee of the United States Congress, originally established under the Revenue Act of 1926. The Joint Committee operates with an experienced professional staff of Ph.D economists, attorneys, and accountants, who assist Members of the majority and minority parties in both houses of Congress on tax legislation.

The Joint Committee is chaired on a rotating basis by the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. During the first Session of each Congress the House has the Chair and the Senate has the vice-chair; during the second session the roles are reversed.

The Joint Committee Staff is closely involved with every aspect of the tax legislative process, including:

Assisting Congressional tax-writing committees and Members of Congress with development and analysis of legislative proposals;
Preparing official revenue estimates of all tax legislation considered by the Congress;
Drafting legislative histories for tax-related bills; and
Investigating various aspects of the Federal tax system.

Sortis Holdings Launches $50 Million Distressed Real Estate Opportunity Fund

PORTLAND, Oregon, Sortis Holdings, Inc. (SOHI), a Portland, Oregon-based alternative investment fund manager, announces the launch of its sixth investment fund, the Sortis Distressed Opportunity Fund, which will look to capitalize on “once-in-a-cycle” real estate and business opportunities created as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Sortis team does not estimate a lengthy recession following the pandemic, but they do believe the crisis will have a deep enough impact on certain areas of the real estate market to create special situation opportunities. While the fund will remain asset class agnostic, the management team is eyeing a few particular areas within the real estate market initially.

The Sortis Distressed Opportunity Fund will look to acquire qualified distressed debt, physical real estate, and select operating businesses across the Western United States. This could include, but not limited to: failed projects, discounted performing & non-performing loans, foreclosures, bankruptcies, and other complex situations.

Building upon its existing fund family foundation, the Sortis team will continue its thematic approach into distressed opportunities, while maintaining a keen focus on capital preservation through built-in downside protection and safeguards.

At Wealthfront, we’re always working to get you more. Our Cash Account, which currently has an APY that’s 5x the national average per FDIC.gov, is just one way we do that. Over the last 15 months, we’ve paid out over $113 million of interest to Cash Account clients.

We decided to give away a total of $100,000 in the Wealthfront Cash Giveaway, where the winners would receive $25,000 each. We were incredibly excited to give the money away because we love rewarding our clients and we hoped that the cash would have a large, positive impact on the winners’ financial lives.

We were gratified to learn that this was exactly what happened. When the Cash Giveaway ended, we reached out to the Wealthfront clients who won to hear what winning $25,000 meant to them. We discovered that the prize meant a lot to our winners – whether it enabled them to achieve a large financial goal or gave them extra financial security in a challenging time. We’re very happy for the winners, and we loved hearing their stories. Read on to meet three of the winners of Wealthfront’s Cash Giveaway.

Tax Authorities Looking For Revenue: Now Is Not the Time To Ignore Transfer Pricing

Transfer Pricing Software

COVID-19 necessitates a reassessment of the existing transfer pricing paradigms of Multinational Enterprises (MNEs). Supply chain disruptions and changes in consumer demand resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and global recession are impacting virtually all major industries. These disruptions erode profits and will require MNEs to adjust transfer pricing approaches. MNEs also face challenges such as government restrictions on travel and enabling personnel to work remotely.

Three points are well illustrated by Will James in the 16-Mar-2020 BKD, LLP Thoughtware® article Transfer Pricing in the Wake of COVID-19: 1) Transfer pricing audits are anticipated to increase for 2020 and future tax years for MNEs with adversely affected profitability; 2) MNEs need to start preparing for audits now by documenting the arm’s length nature of their transfer pricing arrangements and including evidence and analysis of extraordinary COVID-19 business disruptions that result in lower profitability or losses; 3) Documentation of lower profitability or losses that result from COVID-19 and the recession is particularly important for reduced-profit or loss-making MNE entities subject to profit-based methods guaranteeing minimum returns (e.g., Transactional Net Margin Method).

The following is a checklist to consider:
