Fiscal Cliff Notes: What You Need to Know about What's Happened so Far, And What Comes Next
Early on New Year’s Day Congress passed a budget deal to delay automatic across-the-board cuts for two months, extend Unemployment Insurance for a year and make permanent some of the middle class tax breaks. With the across-the-board cuts now scheduled to start March 1 and federal borrowing authority due to run out by then, Congress is edging right back to the fiscal cliff. On this webinar, you'll learn about the recently passed budget deal and what's next.
