Now is an opportune time to review your current tax situation

As 2019 comes to a close, now is an opportune time to review the current tax situations for both individuals and businesses alike. It is our goal to ensure that our clients are aware of, and take full advantage of any beneficial tax strategies and opportunities available, and to begin next year’s planning process as well. With so many changes made to tax law with the signing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), and with many additional changes undoubtedly on the way, we would like to take this opportunity to keep you up to date on some key considerations we have found to have the largest impact on our clientele:
