New Tax Law Update February 12, 2019
New Tax Law Update

 

2018 is now history... but, filing your 2018 tax return is on the horizon. 

 

Are you ready? 

 

New tax law, commonly known as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”, embodies the most comprehensive tax reform we have seen since the 1986 Tax Reform Act and affects almost every type of taxpayer. Join us at 3:00pm on February 12, 2019 at the Hampton Inn and Suites located at 3044 Eastman Road, Longview, TX 75605, as we highlight changes that impact the filing of 2018 tax returns for individuals and small business owners. We will cover topics such as the revised Form 1040, tax rate changes, itemized deductions, depreciation and expensing provisions, and the brand-new qualified business income deduction. We will also provide an update on the current status of estate and gift tax rules. Presenting this information will be Dirk Coleman, CPA, AEP® and Kristin Hildebrand, CPA, AEP®.

 

To register in advance for this event please email supportstaff@cbandco.com or call our office at (903) 758.0734.
