The “Tax Cut and Jobs Act,” which was signed into law on Dec. 22, 2017, creates significant changes to important provisions of the tax code. A reduced rate for C corporations, a new deduction for sole proprietorship and pass-through businesses, including agricultural cooperatives, are just a few of the key changes.

New cost recovery provisions, modified rules for losses, interest deductibility and cash accounting also provide new challenges to tax practitioners. Also, new transfer tax provisions alter the estate and succession planning equation for some clients. Attend to learn how the new rules will impact your practice.
