If you've had to lay off employees as far back as Nov. 1, 2019, a tiny portion of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) might go to them. That's the good news for eligible former employees. The bad news for employers is that your company will have some administrative responsibilities to see that the funds those employees are entitled to actually reach them. In other words, your company will need to pay the cost of maintaining health benefits through your health plan under COBRA provisions and recoup those costs later.

These days, doctors find that many patients come into appointments having already diagnosed themselves based on information they found on the Internet. Given the unregulated nature of the Web, patients often present misleading or distorted information as the basis for self-evaluations when they meet with their physicians.

Organizations that are created to provide goods or services exclusively (or primarily) to Section 501(c)(3) organizations (or governmental entities) may think that this purpose is sufficient to also qualify them under tax law. However, providing commercial type services exclusively to exempt organizations is not by itself an exempt purpose. Much more is required for qualification under the rules of Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) than just having a mission to assist charitable organizations.
