How will you be Impacted? 2019 Texas Legislature & 2017 Federal Tax Reform on States
Houston, Texas
Tuesday August 14, 2018

With the 2019 legislative session looming, how will the Texas Legislature address fiscal challenges remaining from Hurricane Harvey, the pressure to reform our school finance and property tax systems? Are state and local economic development incentives in jeopardy? Will the Texas legislature address various budgetary and infrastructure needs? How will these decisions impact you and your business organization?


Also, the sweeping federal tax reform on the horizon may generate much confusion, frustration and many questions. How will the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act affect state filings? What states have conformed and what states have yet to conform? What type of conformity… and what does this mean in terms of state compliance?


Are you aware of… and prepared for… changes to Revised §163(j), IRC §965 and IRC §965 (c), IRC §951A, IRC §245, IRC §250, IRC §168 (k)… the list goes on and on.
