Congress has passed the largest and most comprehensive tax reform legislation in the past 30 years. Businesses and individuals alike are trying to figure out the tax implications and what this means for them in their current situation and moving forward. Many are asking for the basics:

  • What can I do now to save money?
  • What deductions are available?
  • What strategies do I need to consider?
  • What am I not considering that I should be?

Join presenting sponsor Eide Bailly for a tax-reform update exploring the key provisions, effective dates, how the current plan impacts you and possible action items and next steps. Adam Sweet from Eide Bailly’s National Tax Office will discuss the current state of tax reform, identify business impacts and opportunities and review possible action steps. He will then be joined by a panel that will discuss entity selection/ modification opportunities, the impact on estate planning and how local businesses are making changes based on the new legislation.
