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.
The highlights of the legislation include major reductions in individual, business and corporate tax rates as well as the removal (or reform) of a number of incentives to offset rate reductions. Most of the corporate provisions in the new law are permanent while those on the individual side (due to budgetary restraints) are set to expire by the end of 2025. 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 […]
