Federal and California non-comformity - how do we love thee! This hot topic is the focus of our February Member Meeting as we welcome back Dr. Annette Nellen!

Please join us February 26, 2019 at 6pm.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 14 Months Later

On December 22, 2017, H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, was signed into law making over 100 changes affecting individuals, businesses and tax-exempt entities. What more do we know about these changes 14 months later as the filing of 2018 returns begins? This presentation will cover key rules, cautions and tips for taxpayers, along with what lies ahead and prospects for further changes.
