Prepare for the 2021 filing season by navigating 2020 tax forms and getting updated on the 2017-2018 Minnesota implications for taxpayers amending federal returns for those years under the CARES Act. Gain insight on the Minnesota tax bills enacted during 2020 and Minnesota Department of Revenue COVID-19 policy responses related to nexus, withholding and residency implications of cross-border telecommuting.
