Tax Summation for 2018

At the recent 2018 Qualified Remodeler Top 500 Live Seminar in Baltimore, several tax experts gave a presentation on the changes in the tax laws and how that will affect companies in the upcoming year and beyond.

This special tax informational program was constructed to aid those in specific industries to further analyze this new law, then consult with their accounting and or legal advisors for further determination and implementation as suits their specific circumstances and needs. Their contact information is listed below and elsewhere in this overview.

The information contained herein responds to sweeping changes, methods by which to simplify the law and adapt it to many opportunities for change.

The tax experts who presented this program have spent significant time analyzing and researching the operational models of those who engage in marketing, selling, installing products and providing services – in the home improvement industry. The dissection on the contents of this bill, its benefits and the caution in its use are an immense value to this industry. This review and its content represents an opportunity for large and small companies, their owners, managers, CFOs and accountants to review aspects of this law in preparation for this forthcoming tax year.
