Gain a better understanding of how the impact of new tax changes can uncover tax breaks for your clients.

It's considered the biggest tax overhaul since 1986. The Tax Cuts and Job Act (TCJ) became law on December 22, 2017. The impact of tax changes will affect corporations, non-corporate businesses and individual taxpayers. Some will pay more, others less and a few may see no change.

As with any new tax law, there are often opportunities to structure tax benefits that are not always recognized at first glance. Please join speaker, E. Pete Lewis, for an inside look at planning considerations that may apply to you.
