Tax Reform 101: Provisions and Perspective


The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was signed into law on December 22, 2017 with changes primarily effective as of January 1, 2018. As one of the most significant tax reforms in history, it is crucial individuals and businesses alike understand how they will be affected. We partnered with RSM, an international audit, tax and consulting firm, to provide an overview of the TCJA and how the provisions will affect businesses moving forward.

Our publication provides a summary of the reform affecting privately held corporations, private equity firms and the overall M&A market. For further perspective, we included examples of key provisions as financial models including a pre- and post-reform depiction for corporate and pass-through entities.
