For more information contact: Kelly R. Sweeney

Event Description

After much back and forth, the House and Senate both voted to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Act), and the President signed the legislation into law on December 22, 2017. The changes made by the Act are arguably the biggest leap towards comprehensive tax reform of the Internal Revenue Code since 1986.

Join us for a lunchtime discussion of the issues and impacts for the real estate development and finance industry, including the following: 

  • Deduction for "qualified business income" 
  • Limitation on losses for taxpayers other than corporations 
  • Increased expensing, expansion of section 179 expensing 
  • Applicable recovery period for real property
  • Deductibility of Interest 
  • Recharacterization of certain gains in the case of partnership profits interests held in connection with performance of investment services
