On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” into law, launching the most significant tax reform in over 30 years. The new law significantly impacts citizens and companies alike in both their domestic and foreign income and assets.

Willie H. Hornberger, with the help of a team of Jackson Walker attorneys, has reduced everything you need to know about the 2018 Tax Reform into a single page. A single interactive page that is. Those who are interested in what the new tax system means to them can scan one page for tax implications that may affect them, click the subject of interest, and be taken directly to that area of the 233-page PowerPoint presentation. We believe this is the first Interactive Analysis of the Tax Reform Law available online.

Willie and Jason B. Freeman of Freeman Law used the PowerPoint for their webcast presentation entitled “2018 Tax Reform: What You Need to Know Now” given for the State Bar of Texas and Texas Law Center on January 23, 2018. The webcast provided an overview of the reform provisions with particular attention to the issues that will affect attorneys and their clients including, specifically, the impact of the corporate and pass-through tax changes and overhaul of the international tax system. The webcast will be archived and available for purchase at TexasBarCle.com.
