CFMA Milwaukee welcomes you to a presentation about Corporate Tax and how recent changes have affected business.

This session will address last year’s “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (“TCJA”). This was the most comprehensive tax legislation in over thirty years. The law was aimed at growing the economy, creating jobs, and making US companies more competitive, especially with the rest of the world. Thus, tax changes directed as businesses were a major theme of the tax bill. This CFMA session will cover tax changes in the TCJA for business, and also focus on provisions impacting construction and real estate companies.  

Four Key Learning Objectives of the Session:

  • Identify the major changes in TCJA that impact construction and real estate businesses
  • Based on the tax reductions in TCJA - evaluate the type of entity (C Corporation; S Corporation; or Partnership/LLC) that a contractor or real estate business should consider
  •  Address any tax relief in TCJA that is available for “small” contractors or real estate companies
  • Analyze the impact to construction and real estate companies of the new 30% interest deduction limitation in TCJA.
