2020 Cares Act

The issue with the 2018/2019 filing and the AGI $ 75,000/$ 150,000 limits may not be as straight-forward as it appears. Of course, Congress has included a lot of ambiguity here and word is that you may have to revisit this issue when filing 2020 returns and square up based on 2020 income. This would allow for anyone who falls under 75/150 in 2020 to recapture any missed credit. It is not clearly determinable whether you could owe some of it back based on your 2020 numbers coming in higher. Unlikely, with the way things are going, that many of those near the limits are going to make more in 2020.

To be safe, we do not need to immediately file some 2019 returns that have gone over where 2018 did not, and we intend to accelerate those 2019 filings that are under where 2018 was over and intend to continue to do so.
