Join us for a webcast on how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 could affect technology, communications, and life sciences companies. We’ll discuss potential impacts of the sweeping tax legislation and highlight relevant bill provisions, including:

  • Reduction of the corporate rate to 21%
  • Repeal of the corporate alternative minimum tax (AMT), providing for a transition period where existing AMT credits are refundable
  • Changes to carryforwards and carrybacks of net operating losses
  • Revisions to the taxation of foreign activities
