Business Tax Resources
If the federal estate tax exemption is cut approximately in half in 2026, as is currently scheduled, it may create significant issues for Minnesota taxpayers. The matter becomes especially challenging when one considers what may happen if the portability election is not made.
The IRS has been busy. In the past two years, the agency has processed trillions of dollars in pandemic relief funds, adjusted to often-changing tax deadlines, and dealt with several complex new tax laws. At the same time, funding was 20 percent lower than in 2010. Understaffed is the understatement of the century.
How did tax season go? Whether this most recent tax season left Minnesota business owners feeling good or dreading the thought of what will happen next year, there’s good news. Summer is an excellent time for parties in both camps to reclaim and enact a new tax planning strategy.
Our client satisfaction is exceptional, as demonstrated by our 96.4% satisfaction rate.
