Our Thoughts On the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

January 19, 2018

Schneider Downs Tax Advisors is pleased to introduce Our Thoughts On the Tax Cuts and Job Act.

On December 22, 2017, President Donald Trump signed into law new tax legislation that presents the most comprehensive change in tax law in nearly 30 years. This legislation introduces sweeping changes that will impact nearly all organizations – and individuals – in the United States.

With that in mind, Schneider Downs Tax Advisors has compiled a tax reform guide that highlights many of the most impactful changes affecting US taxpayers. This free resource is available for download. We encourage you to share this with others who may find it informative.

This guide is not intended to replace discussion, but to help prepare for it. We realize you have questions about how this new legislation will impact your organization – and you as an individual. We invite you to review this material, but also to reach out to Schneider Downs to continue monitoring the changes and coordinating related planning options. Our professionals are well-versed in the many details of these tax law changes, and we are prepared to speak with you about how you may be impacted.
