The New Congressional Spending Bill –
How Will it Affect You and Your Business?
Featuring Marni Spence, CPA, Principal with CliftonLarsonAllen LLP

Most taxpayers are familiar with the end-of-year “extender legislation” activity in Congress: approximately 50 deductions, credits and other taxpayer-friendly provisions that are rolled forward for a year or two at a time. This short-term approach is a budget maneuver, to avoid adding to the published size of the federal deficit.

On December 18, Congress finally passed and the President signed the retroactive extender legislation, restoring provisions that expired as of the beginning of 2015. But this year’s legislation was a breath of fresh air: Many of these “extenders” have been made permanent, and some were also enhanced. The others were all rolled ahead two years, to remain in the law through 2016. Join us as we hear from Marni Spence, CPA, Principal with ClftonLarsonAllen LLP, as she explains the new tax provisions and what they mean for you and your business.
