Topics covered in this podcast should not be construed as tax or legal advice; seek the help of a professional who knows your specific business.

Covered in this podcast were:

  • Consolidated Appropriation Act 2021
  • CARES Act
  • Compensation and benefit strategies
  • Student loan repayment
  • Retirement funding—Secure Act 2019
  • Multiple employer 401K funds for small employers

The Consolidated Appropriation Act 2021 clarified many aspects of the CARES Act passed in 2020, according to Heinke. These clarifications will help veterinarians not be overtaxed based on language used in the CARES Act. But, you need to know what the new laws are in order to ensure you are using them to the best benefit of your practice.
