Greetings, and Happy New Year.
Given that Harris and Biden have promised, repeatedly, to repeal all
Trump administration tax cuts, and to implement tax increases,
the question becomes:
Will such increases apply to Tax Year 2020?
Basis for asking. For myself and others who adjusted their withholding
to be close to or slightly over-withheld to a zero balance, based on
the tax liability that would be incurred during the current tax cuts,
the tax liability will surge much higher as so ordered by Harris and Biden.
Under-withholding by over $500 can cause the tax payer to incur
a penalty as a percent of the over $500 tax liability amount.
Yes, there are certain conditions whereby the IRS will waive the penalty.
If the Harris Biden tax net increase is to apply to the year 2020 return,
then the taxpayer will need to file a quarterly return by Jan 15
to remit the anticipated tax liability increase, and later adjust
withholding (or quarterly filing) to conform to the mandates of Harris and Biden.
And so it becomes financially important to know if Harris and Biden's
plan for us, will apply to Tax Year 2020 or (for sure) 2021 and beyond.
Many thanks, for all your hard work here on ATS.
