    by Geoff Lane  | February 07, 2018
    The end of 2017 brought a slew of changes to our tax code. In December, Congress passed a package of reforms that overhauled much of the U.S. tax code for individuals and corporations. Many of these changes were enacted in January, leaving businesses wondering how the updated tax code will impact their operations.

  • Congress Passes Tax Overhaul

    by Geoff Lane  | December 20, 2017
    The United States Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act this week, a package of tax reforms that will overhaul the U.S. tax code for individuals and corporations. Not since 1986 has our tax code undergone such a comprehensive renovation. Consider that in 1986, laptops weighed dozens of pounds, Sergey Brin and Larry Page were still a decade away from launching Google, Mark Zuckerberg was a toddler, and a young Democratic Senator from Tennessee named Al Gore introduced a bill to require the Office of Science and Technology to explore improvements to communications networks for supercomputers.

  • Tax Reform Framework Released

    by Geoff Lane  | September 28, 2017
    This week, key Republican policymakers in Washington unveiled a framework outlining their proposed tax reform goals. While the framework is light on details – this isn’t legislative text, after all – it does provide some insight into what the bill’s writers are thinking. For instance, on corporate reforms the framework would lower the tax rate on corporations to 20%, and tax passthroughs at 25%. It would allow businesses to “write off” or expense investment costs – so long as those investments aren’t structures – for at least five years.

  • Have Skills, Will Travel (If the Tax Laws Aren’t Too Confusing)

    by Geoff Lane  | June 21, 2017
    The House of Representatives this week, passed the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act (H.R. 1393) by a simple voice vote. Passage of the bill with such broad, bipartisan support should send a message to the Senate that it’s now time for that chamber to act accordingly and deliver its own bill (S. 540) for the president’s signature immediately. Many in the IT industry have been monitoring the proposal closely, as it reflects a changing economic landscape and would streamline some of our tax collection laws.

  • A New Congress, Administration and Tax Code?

    by Geoff Lane  | December 07, 2016
    One of the great things about the American political system is the chance to hit the reset button. For better or worse, every two years a new Congress is sworn in. New members come to Washington with new ideas –some more sensible than others– but nevertheless, this biennial tradition brings with it renewed hope. That’s why we’re so excited for 2017 and the soon-to-be-sworn-in 115th Congress.
