Filing taxes might be a bit different for small business owners this year. Many businesses were greatly impacted by months of mandatory closures, lost essential revenue, civil unrest, government loans and grants, and layoffs.

To find out what all these things mean for your taxes, please join our small business reporter Jennifer Ortakales Dawkins and tax expert panelists. We’ll cover how the pandemic, PPP loans, and revenue losses could impact your filings.

The hour-long chat is slated for March 2 at 1 pm ET/10 am PST, and we want your questions.

Meet our panelists:

Robbin Caruso is a partner in the tax department and the co-leader of the National Tax Controversy group of Prager Metis.

Nicole Davis is the founder and principal of Butler-Davis, a tax and accounting firm located outside of Atlanta, GA.

Dean Zerbe is the national managing director of alliantgroup and a former senior counsel to the US Senate Finance Committee.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What’s changed from last year’s tax forms and rules
  • How to claim a PPP loan or EIDL advance on your taxes
  • What businesses can do if they had a significant amount of revenue loss or layoffs
  • How to claim the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)
  • What documents you’ll need to file
  • How to get tax credits and incentives

If you’d like to submit a question to be answered, please fill out this brief form. The journalists will also be taking reader questions live.
