Congress Enacts Historic Tax Reform

Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1) on December 20, which makes major changes to the federal tax code. It marks the first time in 31 years that Congress has passed an overhaul of the federal tax code.

Given the budget constraints that lawmakers had in enacting tax reform, most of the tax changes for corporations are permanent and most of the tax changes for individuals expire at the end of 2025 and return to current law. NLBMDA members should start preparing now to determine what effects the changes will have on their business operations.
