NEW WHITE PAPER: Tax Reform — What ILMA Members Need to Know

President Trump signed the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” into law on December 22, 2017, marking the most significant overhaul to the federal tax code since 1986. The new law does not change the calculus that only death and taxes are certain. Individuals and businesses, however, will see changes to their taxes, beginning in 2018. However, while many of the changes to individual taxes are temporary and somewhat piecemeal, the changes to the business taxes are permanent and comprehensive. The impact to businesses will vary by structure and size.

ILMA cannot address all of the tax law changes in this document. However, the Association highlights below some of key provisions with the encouragement for members to discuss and assess how the new tax reform law will affect their businesses with their tax advisors. Read more.
