Tax Reform Updates
On December 20 congress passed the final Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The bill was signed into law by President Trump on December 22. What does this mean for nonprofits? The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act increases the standard deduction, a change that is estimated to decrease charitable giving by $13 billion annually. The bill repeals the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate, causing 13 million people to lose health insurance and raising premium costs for everyone.
