On December 22, 2017 President Trump signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). The major overhaul of our tax system will lower income tax rates for individual and corporate taxpayers and introduce a new 20% deduction for qualified business income for sole proprietors and pass-through entities (starting in 2018). The cornerstone of this course is the comprehensive discussion of the newly enacted income tax provisions affecting individuals and businesses.
