In today’s episode, your hosts issue a joint mea culpa…about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In our most recent episode on tax reform, we expressed doubt that the bill would become law, large because of how far apart the House and Senate bills were. You can imagine our surprise when Congress actually managed to pass its first major piece of legislation by the end of 2017. We are already starting to the see the effects in the form of new W-4 forms and a new withholding calculator, and the IRS continues to provide updates and guidance as new rules are established. We won’t be able to assess the real impact of the new tax law until after tax season (you can definitely expect a follow-up episode), but in the meantime, we outline the key features of the law and speculate about the impact of the TCJA for business and individual taxpayers, both in terms of liability and in terms of the wider social repercussions that always accompany changes to the tax code. Join, us won’t you?
Also, we’d like to hear what you have to say—are you more concerned about filing your taxes this year than you were last year? If you have already filed, what was your experience?
