Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Sometimes making it to Friday constitutes victory in and of itself. We have asked whatever happened to waterbeds; how to fold your fitted sheets; how to host Zoom meetings (including answers to the question, "Why do I look so terrible?"); and why you cannot stop streaming Seinfeld or Frasier or Bones (or, in E@lert's case, Cybill).

Else, nothing inspires like Ina Garten (and a cosmo in which one could swim the backstroke). Else, we suggest this song for inspiration, and this one because sometimes the dial goes to 11, and this HRB podcast on your mental health and your work.

Otherwise, please consider this list of tax-related items, curated for America's Tax Experts®:
  • The Department of Labor on Wednesday issued guidance regarding administration of the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act as well as the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act. Miller & Chevalier provide context, and a direct link to the temporary rule.
  • In addition, the Department of Labor yesterday announced CARES Act guidance on unemployment insurance, including pandemic unemployment assistance (PUA) for those not typically eligible for unemployment insurance, such as gig workers.
  • Ten million Americans filed for unemployment in the past two weeks — as Politico notes, that is the entire population of Michigan.
  • This just in: Speaker Nancy Pelosi is evidently pushing to remove the SALT limits as part of a new coronavirus relief package — she wants to repeal the provision retroactively for TY18 and TY19. This, dear readers, will be…well, let us just say profoundly difficult.
  • KPMG is offering a free one-hour webinar on COVID-19 and nonprofits.
  • Fortune on everything you need to know about the new 401(k) no-penalty withdrawals provided by the CARES Act.
  • Finally, Politico asks economists to dig deeper into a tough issue: How to balance human lives against the overall economy.
