This overview of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (HR 1865) covers both Extenders AND provisions of The SECURE Act. Enacted on Dec. 20, 2019, this was must-pass legislation, or the government would have shut down on Dec. 21st. Tacked onto the critical appropriation bill were many year-end tax changes – some retroactive. Included in the new law are pension and IRA reform provisions, extenders, disaster relief, and the repeal of a few ACA taxes. Since the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act retroactively changed 16+ tax breaks that had expired in 2017, amended returns for 2018 are required! Also included in this analysis is a summary of 23 major provisions of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (The SECURE Act), the First Pension and IRA Overhaul since the 2006 Pension Protection Act. You Will Leave with No Questions Unanswered!
