On March 27, 2020, the CARES Act was signed into law to help people deal with the devastating economic effects of the coronavirus. Many of the provisions help student loan borrowers, and while they provide some welcome relief, the law doesn’t address all of the problems that student loan borrowers face.

In addition, these provisions are set to expire on September 30, 2020, so the relief is a short-term solution. Therefore, anyone with student loans, whether they are federal, state, or private, need to act soon to have a plan by the deadline. That’s why in this episode of the podcast I talk about some strategies you can look into to use this breather as an opportunity to get your loans back on track!

In this episode you will learn:

  • Ways to get out of default on federal and NJ CLASS student loans
  • How to get an affordable, income driven loan repayment plan
  • How to pay off your loans sooner if you are a public employee

Social distancing orders in light of the coronavirus pandemic have forced companies to send workers home and have them work remotely. The trend might continue. According to a Gartner survey of 317 finance executives on March 30, 3 out of 4 chief finance officers and finance leaders are considering moving at least 5% of their on-site workforce to remote positions permanently after the pandemic.

In addition, many people have reported an increase in quality of life and a shift in the work-life balance after having worked from home for a while. But all of this can raise tax issues for you that could come back to haunt you. That’s why in this episode of the podcast I wanted to talk about those issues, so that if you’d like to make your kitchen, your spare bedroom, or your beach house  your permanent office, you will know what it might mean for your taxes.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What bordering states have reciprocal tax agreements
  • How being taxed by two states can work for or against you
  • The good and bad news about home office deductions
