What Tax Reform Means for Independent Professionals & Their Clients

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in more than 20 years. While formal guidance on the tax code has yet to come out, it is evident that it will greatly affect individuals and enterprises. These new changes will have a big impact on both individuals working as independent contractors, as well as the businesses that engage with these individuals.

In this exclusive webinar, Gene Zaino, Founder and Executive Chairman at MBO Partners, and Eric H. Rumbaugh, Partner at Michael Best & Friedrich Law Firm, discussed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and how it has changed the current tax code.
