Legislative & Legal
  
AGCVA and PBMares virtual meeting 
Friday, December 18, 2020  at 1:00 p.m. 

AGCVA and PBMares presents a virtual meeting on PPP Loan Forgiveness & Tax Planning in 2021.  A lot has happened in 2020.  While we haven't had a lot of legislation in the last few months, we've had a lot of guidance come out from the IRS and the SBA, particularly surrounding PPP funds.  Recipients of PPP funds may face tax implications and as we approach the end of the year, it's time to start thinking about 2021.  

Join AGCVA and PBMares for a discussion on the evolving legislation and guidance on loan forgiveness and strategies to help with tax implications and planning for 2021.  PBMares partners, Jennifer French and Maura Lange, will lead this discussion.
