With the passage of the GOP tax bill by Congress on December 20, the long road to tax reform has brought us the largest overhaul to the tax code since 1986. The widespread changes affect many aspects of individual and business taxes, beginning in 2018, and your clients will be coming to you with a myriad of concerns and planning questions. Don’t get caught off guard. This 4-hour seminar will get you up-to-speed on all of the critical aspects of the new law and prepare you to effectively advise both your individual and business clients.
