Here’s what you and your tax professional can discuss in order to help reduce your tax liability for 2020 and beyond.

Small business owners are often looking for ways to minimize their companies’ tax liability. This year’s conversation with your tax professional could be especially important, says accountant Vinay Navani of WilkinGuttenplan, as accountants fully grasp the tax implications of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act for small business owners.
