Description

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed in December 2017, brought us the largest overhaul to the tax code since 1986. The widespread changes affect many aspects of individual and business taxes, beginning this year, and your clients will be coming to you with a myriad of concerns and planning questions. Dont get caught off guard. This seminar will get you up-to-speed on all of the critical aspects of this law and prepare you to effectively advise both your individual and business clients.
