• 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.
