The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 is the most radical change in tax law in a generation. This course will identify the major changes and examine the impact of the new tax law on a broad range of financial planning strategies, including the purchase of a personal residence and other investment real estate, the financing of education, saving for retirement, estate planning, charitable giving, and minimizing the alternative minimum tax. A few simple steps in each of these areas might save a taxpayer thousands of tax dollars. By the end of the course, you will have the tools necessary to estimate your 2018 tax bill and you will be able to fold knowledge of the new law into your personal financial strategy. The course covers in greater depth the tax-savings concepts commonly discussed in our introductory financial planning courses and looks at more complex tax-savings techniques. “It’s not how much you make that counts; it’s what you keep!”
