Sweeping changes to the federal tax code, such as tax reform—referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act—and legislation responding to the US Supreme Court’s Wayfair decision, have significant implications for businesses.

In this webcast, we cover key tax changes that impact technology, communications and media, and life sciences companies; discuss how these changes might affect your business; and help you determine if your company is subject to tax exposure.
