Wolters Kluwer partners with Mayer Brown LLP for tax attorney webinar on Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the launch of a three-part webinar series in partnership with renowned law firm Mayer Brown LLP to examine the most impactful areas of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Participants will have the opportunity to earn free CLE credits by attending each live hour-long webinar.
The webinars will be led by Mayer Brown Tax Transactions & Consulting partners Thomas A. Humphreys and Remmelt A. Reigersman. Linda O'Brien, a leading tax analyst for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S., will moderate the webinars and guide the discussion around key subject areas, including pass-through entities, corporate taxation and international taxation.
“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 impacted numerous areas of the law and virtually every taxpayer,” said Linda O'Brien, tax analyst for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “In partnership with Mayer Brown's acclaimed tax practitioners, this webinar series will provide tax advisors with key insights on the most complex and consequential impacts, including the new provisions and focus on 2018 IRS guidance, and prospects for future guidance in 2019 and beyond.”
"In the year since the U.S. Congress passed sweeping domestic and international tax law changes in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we have seen a flood of IRS guidance interpreting the new rules with more to come,” said Thomas A. Humphreys, Tax Transactions & Consulting partner of Mayer Brown. “With these three seminars in partnership with Wolters Kluwer, we look forward to helping tax advisors understand how to interpret the most significant effects of the legislation."
The series kicks off on Tuesday, November 27 with "Section 199A and Other Provisions Affecting Pass-Through Vehicles." Topics will include the changes from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the treatment of pass-through entities, carried interest income, limits on interest deductibility for business interest and the Elimination of “technical termination” rule.
