TAX REFORM: WHAT THE LAW WILL BE IN 2018

The attached piece from Northern Trust summarizes current law and what the law will be beginning in 2018 with a view toward what matters most to you. In a last minute amendment to the bill, the short title of the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" was removed without replacement. For ease of reference, we will refer to the new law as the "Major 2017 Tax Act.

5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE MAJOR 2017 TAX ACT

  • Individual and corporate tax changes are effective January 1, 2018, but many individual provisions expire December 31, 2025.
  • Estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer (“GST”) taxes remain in effect with double the basic exclusion and GST exemption amounts.
  • Individual ordinary income tax rate reductions include lowering the top marginal rate to 37%, but the individual alternative minimum tax (“AMT”) remains in effect with a higher exclusion amount.
  • Qualifying pass-through entity and sole proprietor business income for individuals (and estates and trusts) generally has a 20% deduction.
  • Corporate income tax rates are reduced to 21% (from 35%) and the corporate AMT is repealed.
