The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), signed into law during the closing days of 2017, significantly affects tax planning and the income tax liability for many taxpayers. This course examines the provisions affecting the taxation of individuals related to changes in:

• Individual and capital gains tax rates;
• Standard deduction and exclusions;
• Income and adjustments to income;
Itemized deductions in Form 1040 Schedule A;
• Form 1040 Schedule C;
• Tax credits;
• Individual alternative minimum tax (AMT);
• Taxation of unearned income of minor children;
• Qualified tuition plans;
ABLE accounts;
• Tax treatment of student loan indebtedness discharges;
• Net operating losses; and
• Affordable Care Act individual responsibility requirement.

We also review the business-related TCJA provisions affecting individual taxpayers, including the pass-through deduction for qualified trades or businesses under IRC §199A.
