Within days, Congress drafted and enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which touches virtually every US business and household. During this online event, distinguished tax policy experts will assess this unprecedented policy response by examining the following:
What problems were the CARES Act and other recent bills intended to solve, and how are they achieving those goals?
What are the challenges to delivering recovery rebates during a pandemic?
How will this legislation affect charitable deductions?
How will businesses respond to the tax relief? Is it well targeted? Will it create unanticipated gaming opportunities?
