Financial Advice Amid COVID-19

In these uncertain times, access to financial advice is crucial. Randy Brunet, of Brunet Wealth Management, offers these top two tips:

1) Filing deadline for IRS and Louisiana income tax is moved to July 15, 2020.  No extension necessary until then.  If you are due a refund, file your return ASAP as to receive your refund sooner.

2) Small businesses may be entitled to an SBA loan to help funding payroll and other essential expenses.  Check with your bank for requirements, as this is what is recommended by SBA.

Many of us may put off filing our taxes because it is often an overwhelming process. Hiring a professional gives you peace of mind. You may also find that you receive a larger refund than if you had prepared your own return. And even if you are not owed a refund, the sooner you know your tax liability, the sooner you can budget for its payment (or file for an extension).

With regard to the SBA loans, since only a finite amount of resources are available, the sooner you put your business in line, the better. According to NPR:

Congress has appropriated $349 billion toward this program. That may not be enough to meet demand, but it is possible Congress will decide to put more funds toward this program.
