Agreement on Tax Reform – Impact to Individuals
On Friday, December 15, a joint conference committee comprised of House and Senate members released an agreed-upon version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”). The Act provides the most comprehensive update to the tax code since 1986 and includes a number of provisions of particular interest to our private clients.
As was previously proposed in the earlier Senate bill, individual tax reform is temporary. Unless noted, the provisions discussed below would go into effect on January 1, 2018, and expire on December 31, 2025.
