On March 27, 2020, President Donald Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) into law, which is aimed at providing significant tax and non-tax stimulus to individuals and businesses. Created as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the $2.2 trillion package is the most expensive legislation passed in U.S. history.
Some of the CARE Act’s provisions provides opportunities for businesses and individuals to access much-needed cash now, while others may not result in a realized benefit until taxpayers begin filing (or amending in the case of 2019 returns filed before enactment of this law) their 2019 and 2020 tax returns.
