Prepare For Impact

In this special bonus episode of the Science of Economic Freedom, we do a general overview of some of the biggest changes brought by the new tax law.

Topics in the podcast include:

  • Personal income tax law changes; the new tax brackets, new deductions, new exemptions, new education provisions and the new rules governing the alternative minimum tax, or AMT.
  • Estate, gift and generation-skipping tax law changes, including ways to start thinking about strategies to take advantage of the various provisions in the law.
  • Business pass-through entities and the new 20% deduction in “qualified business income” or QBI. The new phase-amounts, and whether you should consider reclassifying into a C-corp. to take advantage of the new corporate tax rates.

Everyone will be affected differently by the new tax law, and everyone’s situation needs to be looked at holistically. We highly recommend talking to your advisor before making any decisions.

Plus, who is affected most by this law? Hint, it’s all about where you live, and how much money you make.

Here’s a few “Action Step” takeaways:

1) Take some of your new understanding of the tax law with you into your next meeting with your CPA when preparing your 2017 returns. Now is the time to prepare for next year’s law changes.
