Tax Planning for Contractors for 2021 & Beyond
Since the Biden administration unveiled their tax plan, many have been wondering how these proposed changes would impact businesses and individuals if enacted. In this session, we will dive into the details of the specific provisions within the Biden tax plan and review the impact they could have on construction businesses and contractors. In addition, we will provide important insights into the top tax opportunities that contractors should consider to help minimize their 2021 tax obligations and to plan for in 2022 and beyond.
