Gain insight on the new tax laws changes for businesses and individuals. Here are a few quick bullets, to peak your interest on what people are most questioning about the new tax laws:

  • Why didn’t everyone get a pay increase when corporate taxes decreased?
  • Oh no,  what do you mean that we can’t entertain clients or go to the ball games?
  • Have you noticed that everyone seems to be getting a divorce this year?
