Tax Season is Here!

by Julie Wright on February 14, 2019

Happy tax season! There is so much to think about as we dive into the 2018 returns. Last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) introduced many new changes to the tax code. If your head starts to spin at the mention of the word taxes, take a deep breath – the enclosed piece will help make things clearer.

Here you’ll find a guide (see link below) that breaks down the biggest changes to the tax code to help you figure out which ones might affect your 2018 returns. We’ve also got all the major deadlines listed so you won’t miss a beat.

If you’re considering hiring a tax pro to help make sense of it all, call us! We have a great referral and we can connect you.
