A Roadmap to Key Provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act


After months of speculation over what would be included in Trump-era tax reform, legislative language is finally here, with the release of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1).

With Republican leadership hoping to enact legislation before the end of the year, stakeholders will have to act quickly to digest the bill and determine how their interests would be affected.
