The Council has taken initial steps to enact a permanent Fiscal Year 2021 Budget Support Act. The tax-related changes in the Emergency Act include, but are not limited to, delaying the deduction put in place several years ago to offset the financial statement impact of the District moving to combined reporting and limiting the tax benefits of investing in certain Opportunity Zone Funds to local funds certified by the mayor.
