Tax reform has taken many twists and turns since April. It appears that any iteration of a tax reform bill will be far from business as usual. Simplification of tax rate tiers and nearly doubling the standard deduction have an overall aim of making individual tax filing easier. However, certain provisions for eliminating deductions are a valid concern among both business owners and individuals. There are good ideas that align with historic tax reform, and others that stray far from it. The best course is to look at your own tax situation from the previous year and consider ways to improve it, while sitting tight on tax news from the Hill. It’s only a framework, so far.
