Everyone knows the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was the most important federal tax legislation since 1986. But what many still don’t know is exactly how the 2017 Act changes the income and estate planning strategies used by high net worth individuals. This informative and entertaining presentation will recap the key aspects of the new law, with a focus on how the new rules change the income, estate, and gift tax planning advice we give to clients. Special emphasis will be on the new 199A deduction for qualified business income and planning with an $11.18 million transfer tax exclusion.
