alliantgroup Issues Statement on the Passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

By |January 11th, 2018|Press Releases|0 Comments

HOUSTON, Jan. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Last month, Congress passed, and the president signed into law, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This legislation represents the most comprehensive reform of the tax code in over three decades and implements a number of sweeping policy changes that are intended to provide tax relief for U.S. businesses and encourage long-term economic growth.

However, it is the expectation of GOP lawmakers that a future Congress will make the changes for individuals and pass-throughs permanent.

On the corporate side, the new law lowers […]
