Additional Relief is Here: Analyzing Opportunities in the American Rescue Plan



Note: CPE not available on replay.

The second largest COVID-19 stimulus legislation to date, the American Rescue Plan, offers widespread relief for individuals and businesses. From the extension and enhancement of the Employee Retention tax credit, to the restaurant revitalization grant program, and the lengthening of a credit for certain types of leave and temporary COBRA subsidies, there are several provisions to unpack and consider as part of your 2021 planning. Our team will profile notable provisions from the American Rescue Plan to help you and your business take advantage of the changes from the 2021 stimulus law.
