So Many Changes! What Tax Practitioners Need to Know for the 2018 Filing Season

January 24, 2018

Co-Sponsored with the Iowa State Bar Association and the Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation

We have a new tax law and everything is changing. But, we still have a filing season to get through before the major sections of the law impact returns. On January 24, from 12:00 to 2:00 pm, we will update tax practitioners with what they need to know to get through the 2018 filing season. We will also provide an overview of key provisions of the new tax law practitioners must know to advise clients as 2018 gets underway.
