News: What the Inflation Reduction Act Means for Startups

The Inflation Reduction Act is a sweeping $750 billion health care, tax, and climate bill that was signed into law on August 16, 2022. There is a lot of news about this significant legislation and what it’s doing for lowering drug costs and subsidizing clean energy. One topic that isn’t getting enough attention, however, is that this bill is big news for small businesses and startups. To put it simply, the bill impacts the research and development tax credit.

News: 25% Foreign-owned corps in U.S. who missed filling form 5472

Did you miss filing form 5472 at some point? Normally this means big penalties that are nearly impossible to waive, but finally there is some relief. The IRS sent out a news blast today with some great news for corporations that file form 5472 - they are waiving penalties on late filed international information returns for 2019 and 2020. This is huge for corporations with foreign owners, as many have avoided filing for fear of the $25,000 per form penalty being assessed.
