The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is accepting applications for the residential component of the Economic Redevelopment and Growth (ERG) Program. The ERG program, which was originally created to address project financing gaps in development projects, previously stopped accepting new applications in June 2019 because its enabling legislation ended. The Authority first announced the re-opening of the program, enabled by $50 million in tax credits designated in the Economic Recovery Act of 2020 (ERA), in March.

Under the ERA, residential ERG projects can receive tax credits of up to 30 percent of total eligible project costs. Projects in Atlantic City, Camden, Paterson, Passaic, and Trenton can receive tax credits of up to 40 percent of eligible project costs. ERG tax credits are not meant to be a substitute for conventional debt and equity financing, and applicants should generally have their primary debt financing in place before applying.

The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis has sent letters to four financial technology (FinTech) firms and their partner banks seeking documents and information related to their handling of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. The requests follow reports that FinTech companies and bank partners have been linked to a disproportionate number of fraudulent PPP loans.

The letters were sent to companies that have been linked to high numbers of fraudulent loan prosecutions and whose due diligence and fraud detection practices have been publicly called into question. They are โ€“
โ€ข Kabbage, Inc.,
โ€ข BlueVine,
โ€ข Cross River Bank,
โ€ข Celtic Bank.

Recent reports have found that FinTechs and their bank partners handled 75 percent of the approved PPP loans that have been connected to fraud by DOJ, despite facilitating just 15 percent of PPP loans overall. This potential failure of due diligence came even as these same FinTechs were paid hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to process these government-backed loans.

One of the many tax law compliance efforts proposed by the present administration focuses on crypto transactions. Cryptocurrency poses a significant detection problem by facilitating illegal activity such as tax evasion. And although crypto transactions are a relatively small portion of business income today, they are likely to rise in importance in the next decade.

So as cash transactions are subject to reporting when they exceed $10,000, businesses that receive cryptoassets with a fair market value of more than $10,000 would require reporting.

The IRS has announced that the first monthly payment of the expanded and newly-advanceable Child Tax Credit (CTC) from the American Rescue Plan will be made on July 15. Roughly 39 million households โ€” covering 88% of children in the United States โ€” are slated to begin receiving monthly payments without any further action required.

The IRS also announced the increased CTC payments will be made on the 15th of each month unless the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday. Families who receive the credit by direct deposit can plan their budgets around receipt of the benefit. Eligible families will receive a payment of up to $300 per month for each child under age 6 and up to $250 per month for each child age 6 and above.

The American Rescue Plan increased the maximum Child Tax Credit in 2021 to $3,600 for children under the age of 6 and to $3,000 per child for children between ages 6 and 17. The American Rescue Plan is projected to lift more than five million children out of poverty this year, cutting child poverty by more than half.

Households covering more than 65 million children will receive the monthly CTC payments through direct deposit, paper check, or debit cards.

The IRS is issuing refunds to eligible taxpayers who paid taxes on 2020 unemployment compensation that the recently-enacted American Rescue Plan later excluded from taxable income.

The IRS identified over 10 million taxpayers who filed their tax returns prior to the American Rescue Plan of 2021 becoming law in March and is reviewing those tax returns to determine the correct taxable amount of unemployment compensation and tax. This could result in a refund, a reduced balance due or no change to tax (no refund due nor amount owed).

The IRS will issue refunds resulting from this effort by direct deposit for taxpayers who provided bank account information on their 2020 tax return. If valid bank account information is not available, the refund will be mailed as a paper check to the address of record. The IRS will continue to send refunds until all identified tax returns have been reviewed and adjusted.

These refunds are subject to normal offset rules, such as past-due federal tax, state income tax, state unemployment compensation debts, child support, spousal support or certain federal nontax debts (i.e., student loans). The IRS will send a separate notice to the taxpayer if the refund is offset to pay unpaid debts.

In a May 11, 2021 hearing before the Senate Subcommittee on Taxation and IRS Oversight, the IRS testified about the amount of money being held offshore.

Based on the latest available information (from 2017 returns), the IRS estimated that $2.7 trillion was held offshore. Of that amount, $2 trillion was held in tax evading countries by US citizens. Additionally, the IRS admitted that they havenโ€™t developed a reliable estimate of the international tax gap at this time. But theyโ€™re working on it.

TAXBIT (WWW.TaxBit.Com) will help the IRS with data analysis and tax calculation support regarding crypto currency transactions.

TAXBIT โ€˜s CEOโ€™s statement on the website states:

โ€œThis is a milestone moment for the cryptocurrency industry. It indicates regulators are embracing the asset class, but doing so in a way that ensures a straightforward approach to conform with existing regulations. We believe this is an important step for the enablement of widespread cryptocurrency adoption.โ€

The Newโ€™s release also notes:

โ€œThis announcement does not mean that TaxBit will ever give customersโ€™ information to the IRS. Instead, the IRS provides data to TaxBit from a population of taxpayers that they determine on their own, completely independent from TaxBit. TaxBit Government is separate from TaxBit Consumer and TaxBit Enterprise.โ€

Gig economy workers must report all income, even if the income is:
โ€ข From part-time, temporary, or side work
โ€ข Not reported on a Form 1099-K, 1099-NEC, 1099-MISC, W-2, or other information return.
โ€ข Paid in the form of cash, property, goods, or virtual currency

Gig economy workers may also be required to make quarterly estimated income tax payments and pay self-employment tax. Gig economy workers have two ways to cover their income taxes:
โ€ข If they have another job as an employee, gig workers can submit a new From W-4 to their employer to have more income taxes withheld from their paycheck.
โ€ข Make quarterly estimated tax payments to help pay their income taxes throughout the year, including self-employment tax.

A federal court in California has authorized the IRS to summons the records of Payward Ventures Inc., and Subsidiaries d/b/a Kraken (Kraken)-a digital currency exchanger. The summons focuses on U.S. taxpayers who conducted at least the equivalent of $20,000 in transactions in cryptocurrency during the years 2016 to 2020.

The courtโ€™s order grants the IRS permission to serve what is known as a โ€œJohn Doeโ€ summons on Kraken. The summons seeks information related to the IRSโ€™s โ€œinvestigation of an ascertainable group or class of personsโ€ that the IRS has reasonable basis to believe โ€œmay have failed to comply with internal revenue laws.โ€ According to the copy of the summons filed with the petition, the IRS directed Kraken to produce records identifying the U.S. taxpayers described above, along with other documents relating to their cryptocurrency transactions.

Eliminate common errors by-

Electronic Filing – It reduces mistakes and maximizes deductions. The software automatically applies the latest tax laws, checks for available credits or deductions, does the calculations, and asks taxpayers for all required information.

Report all Taxable Income – Be sure to have income documents before starting the tax return. Examples are Forms W-2, 1099-MISC or 1099-NEC. Underreporting income may lead to penalties and interest.

Use Correct Names and Social Security Numbers – Enter each Social Security number (SSN) and individual’s name on a tax return exactly as printed on the Social Security card.

Use the Correct Routing and Account Numbers- Make sure the financial institution routing and account numbers entered on the return are accurate. Incorrect numbers can cause a refund to be delayed or deposited into the wrong account.

Sign and Date the Return – If filing a joint return, both spouses must sign and date the return. E-filers can sign using a self-selected personal identification number (PIN).

Request an Extension, if Needed โ€“ Taxpayers who cannot meet the May 17 deadline can request an automatic filing extension to October 15. Use Free File or Form 4868. But an extension to file doesnโ€™t extend the time to pay-tax payments are still due May 17.
