• Tax Reform

Legislative updates and actionable insights.

The $1.5 trillion tax legislation of 2017 represents the biggest change to the tax code in a generation. The tax reform bill known as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (TCJA) has broad implications – both for businesses and the people behind them.

From lowering the corporate and individual income rates and eliminating numerous deductions, to new rules for pass-throughs, the elimination of the AMT for corporations, and the shift to a territorial tax system, the business implications of tax reform will be felt for years to come.

But what does the new law really mean for your business, and for you? The impact will be different for every business and industry. BDO’s tax reform resource center brings together important legislative updates with actionable insights.

The evolution of tax.

As global business becomes increasingly complex, managing taxation in multiple jurisdictions has also become more complicated as governments and other tax authorities are intensifying their scrutiny on corporate tax practices.

If tax reform has taught us anything, it’s that change is the new normal. Tax laws are constantly updated as the IRS issues new guidance and regulations. U.S. tax reform altered everything from corporate tax rates to rules around deductions for interest expenses. The Supreme Court’s decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair also sent states scrambling to alter how they tax products and services from remote sellers.

Staying on top of tax reform news is no easy task, which is why BDO has developed this resource center to provide you with the latest news and insights.
