March 15, 2021

With 4 weeks remaining this tax season, it looks like many people will need an amended return for 2020.


The tax software providers and the IRS computers are not yet prepared to handle the newly passed legislation.


The IRS has advised that you should NOT yet amend returns that had Unemployment Compensation or Repayment of the Advance Premium Tax Credit. Official IRS guidance is forthcoming.


If you have already filed your 2020 tax return, and you need an amended tax return, we will not be able to process them until after April 15th.

Drake Software Broadcast Center

Unemployment Compensation - New Exclusion

Last night, the IRS released more details on how to report the new exclusion of up to $10,200 (per spouse) of Unemployment Compensation.


Our goal, as always, is to make timely changes to the software. We ask for your continued patience while we analyze, implement and test the necessary software changes. We will be working diligently to incorporate this new Unemployment Compensation Exclusion Worksheet and we'll email you again when we release the update.


In addition, we are actively working with state tax agencies to determine how states plan to address the federal tax law changes brought about by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. For state conformity updates, please see KB article 17148. We will update this article as we receive information from the states.


Please stay tuned for information about the Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC) — the IRS's first priority was the Unemployment Exclusion change and we expect more information on the APTC in the near future.


The IRS has advised that you should not yet amend returns that had Unemployment Compensation or Repayment of the Advance Premium Tax Credit. Official IRS guidance is forthcoming.
