Smart Talk Monday: A historic Supreme Court term ends; July tax day questions

  • Scott LaMar

As the final arbiter of the nation’s laws, any decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court can be considered historic. However, some rulings are more significant than others. Under that premise, the Supreme Court term that ended last week was one for the history books.

The Court’s decisions also weren’t as predictable, as many expected them to be based on the justices’ political philosophies.

The Court ruled it is illegal for employers to discriminate against an employee based on that employee’s sexual orientation or gender identity, struck down Louisiana’s law that would have required doctors who performed abortion to have admitting privileges at a hospital, and upheld the Trump administration rule that exempts employers who cite religious or moral objections from part of the Affordable Care Act that requires providing no-cost contraceptives to employees.

Widener University Commonwealth Law School Professor of Law Michael Dimino is on Monday’s Smart Talk to provide context to the Supreme Court rulings.

Also, the extended tax deadline, due to the coronavirus pandemic, is Wednesday, July 15.

Michael G. Radich, CPA, is the chairman of the federal tax committee of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Founding Shareholder & President at MGR CPA & Consultants and he join Smart Talk to answer tax questions. Radich is also going to spotlight other tax issues that business owners should understand, especially if they have taken advantage of CARES Act assistance from the federal government.
