President Trump Signs Sweeping Tax OverhaulDecember 22, 2017
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1) was signed today by President Trump. H.R. 1 impacts virtually every individual and business on a level not seen in over 30 years. As with any tax bill, however, there are “winners” and “losers.” This historic bill calls for lowering the individual and corporate tax rates, repealing countless tax credits and deductions, enhancing the child tax credit, boosting business expensing, and more. The bill also impacts the Affordable Care Act (ACA), effectively repealing the individual shared responsibility requirement.
