The passage of the Families First and Cares Acts has caused massive changes to IRS Form 941 that affect the final three quarters in 2020! 16 new lines now appear on this form along with changes to two others! Are you ready to meet these changes and handle them correctly?

Here are just some of the new items you must now know and understand:

  • What has changed in Line 11?
  • Where do you enter your total non-refundable credits?
  • Where do you enter the deferred amount of the employer share of social security tax?
  • Where do you enter total deposits, deferrals, and refundable credits?
  • What is entered on Line 22?

Webinar Objectives

In the U.S., tort litigation is of course an enormous problem for healthcare institutions and professionals, as it is for Pharma, MedTech, Biotech, and the providers of the platforms used in distance care. As suggested above, there is reason to anticipate that telemedicine’s nearly spotless record to date may change in the not-too-distant future. The problems we will consider include the legal theories that may be asserted against defendants, the likelihood of their success, the ways by which prospective defendants can identify and manage their risks, and how they might reasonably transfer risk.  During the webinar Joe, will also consider defenses that might arise in such litigation and their potential to prevent adverse findings.

Webinar Agenda

  • A brief description of distance care
  • Identification of the elements of the relevant torts
