FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES

Richard A. Schurr keeps a constant watch on changes in the law affecting individuals and businesses. For example, the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) or "stimulus package" provides several new federal tax credits to qualifying small businesses. They include an extension on carrying back operating losses and the ability to write off certain business equity investments. Early in December, President Obama outlined another economic stimulus package of tax cuts that includes eliminating capital gains taxes on small business investments and allowing small businesses to deduct additional capital expenses sooner.
