Tax, Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Legal News

Tax law is one of the most complex areas of the law.  With the recent legislation, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts (TCJA), the first major change to tax law since 1986, this had many implications for business owners, as well as private individuals for tax filing purposes. Almost every decision a business makes may have tax consequences, and the National Law Review has legal analysis of the new TCJA legislation as well as updates on the IRS interpretations and guidance documents.

State Tax Laws (SALT)

Additionally, the National Law Review has coverage of many state’s tax laws, as well as states response to the TCJA.   These SALT issues are carefully analyzed by the legal experts who write for the National Law Review.  Along with state income tax rules, there is also information on how states are handling aspects of the gig economy, as well as state response to changes with the individual mandate under the Affordable Care Act.

GILTI Tax, Estate, Base Erosion Anti-Abuse Tax
