This week, we're diving into some of the recent changes related to filing taxes in 2020 for income earned during the 2019 tax year. These changes were announced in an effort to provide support and relief for everyday Americans. But, do the changes accomplish that? How do the changes affect average Americans and does the average person think it is enough? What other major changes to the tax processing system should we prepare ourselves for? Find out about these details and more in this week's FinCap Friday below:
