Federal Tax Alert - January 2014

January 2014

2013 was an eventful year for federal tax developments, notable from its onset by passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA), which permanently extended the Bush-era tax cuts for all but higher-income taxpayers as well as numerous other important, but previously temporary, provisions. The year also saw an ample release of important guidance relating to the Affordable Care Act, the new Net Investment Income tax and Additional Medicare Tax, capitalization and repairs, the tax treatment of married same-sex couples and much more.
