On December 22, 2017, the most sweeping tax legislation since the Tax Reform Act of 1986 was signed into law. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) makes small reductions to income tax rates for most individual tax brackets and significantly reduces the income tax rate for corporations. It also provides a large new tax deduction for owners of pass-through entities and significantly increases individual alternative minimum tax (AMT) and estate tax exemptions. Please join as our speaker Andrew Davidson, CPA discusses the new tax legislation and what it means for you and your clients.

Imagine yourself 5 or 20 years from now.  You’ve accomplished great things in your career. You’ve been successful by every definition.  Or, then again, maybe you haven’t.  Maybe you are still searching for a fulfilling career to stir your soul.  What differentiates the women/men who set new goals and reach new heights, and those that never reach their full potential?  Success is seldom accidental.   It starts with having a clear vision of what you wish to become.  Defining your vision, goals and priorities is the critical first step.
