Tax Code Is Weaponized in Feds’ Fight Against Virus (Podcast)

March 27, 2020, 8:46 AM

Congress and federal agencies are taking steps that, until recently, would have been unthinkable, in an attempt to mitigate some of the economic damage wrought by the coronavirus pandemic.

On this episode of our podcast, Talking Tax, we hear from Bloomberg Tax reporters: Allyson Versprille about whether the IRS is doing enough to make life easier for taxpayers—and for its own employees, and Colin Wilhelm about how Congress’ $2 trillion spending package is essentially a “bridge loan for the American public.”

Listen to their conversations with host Siri Bulusu on the latest episode.
