Last month, Congress passed and the president signed into law the most comprehensive reform of the tax code in over three decades. The new legislation implements a number of sweeping changes designed to provide tax relief for U.S. businesses and to encourage long-term economic growth.

There are however a number of substantial modifications that companies and their tax advisors will need to consider before filing this year’s returns—and our Washington insiders are here to break down the tax bill and how it will impact your future tax planning. Please join us for a complimentary webinar as former U.S. Congressman Rick Lazio and former Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee Dean Zerbe discuss the major highlights of the legislation and the steps that businesses and their tax advisors should be taking as we enter the new year.

During the webinar, our Washington insiders will provide their insights and answer your questions regarding the recently passed tax bill. Attend this informative webinar to learn how this legislation will impact both CPAs and U.S. businesses!
