Course Description

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act provided hundreds of billions of dollars to support businesses and stimulate the economy.  Recognizing that such huge amounts of money will attract some fraudulent behavior, Congress has earmarked significant funding for monitoring compliance and enforcement.  The IRS has a significant role in disseminating CARES Act relief and will be tasked with a large part of ensuring compliance and enforcement activities.  Indeed, several criminal fraud cases already have been filed and more are sure to follow.  This panel will explain how the IRS will be monitoring the provision of the CARES Act such as tax refunds and credits, the Payroll Protection Program, and Net Operating Losses.
