Congressional leadership  had  been  promising  to  deliver  comprehensive  tax  reform since the 2016 elections. This session will look at the continuing impact of the law they produced and items that will impact clients. The changes made in late 2017 are the most significant tax changes since the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and we continue to receive guidance and learn about applying the rules found in the Act.This course will update you on the changes that you need to advise your clients about as you look to their tax planning.

  • Apply the Section 199A passthrough deduction rules
  • List the changes in itemized deductions under TCJA
  • Calculate the limits on the deduction of business related interest expense and, for eligible businesses, advise the business on related elections
  • Help clients understand the impact and advisability of changing their tax entity under TCJA
