Tax Reform: The Conversation Continues.

The $1.5 trillion tax reform bill known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) represented the biggest change to the tax code in a generation. Now, four years later and with Democrats controlling the presidency and both chambers of Congress, tax reform is back on the table.
When asked what the most significant determinant of their total tax liability would be in 2021, the result of the presidential election was the second most-cited option selected by tax executives in our Tax Outlook Survey. With the landscape primed for tax code reforms, businesses should be prepared for increased obligations.

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.
