Year-end planning for 2018 takes place against the backdrop of a new tax law — the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) — that was passed last December and that made major changes to the tax rules for individuals and businesses. For businesses, the corporate tax rate is cut to 21%, the corporate AMT is eliminated, there are new limits on business interest deductions and the deduction of pass-through business losses, significantly liberalized expensing and depreciation rules, and there is a new deduction for non-corporate taxpayers with qualified business income from pass-through entities.  Also, in the foreground is the possibility of new tax legislation being passed before or after year-end.
