The recently signed 2018 Federal tax bill contains big changes in the taxation of business entities. These changes are significant enough that it is wise to rethink your business structure and consider whether a change to a pass-through entity or a C-corporation, as the case may be, may result in tax benefits. One significant is the change in tax rates and, as a result, in certain situations, the maximum combined C-corporation rate of 36.8 percent could be less than the top individual and pass-through rate of 37 percent.
Dickinson's tax attorneys, Cody Edwards and David Repp, have authored a whitepaper explaining the key issues to consider in light of the new tax law and why it is prudent for to review your business structure.
Tax laws are complicated and will evolve as the IRS provides guidance interpreting the new tax laws. Dickinson's tax law attorneys stay abreast of the tax laws and regularly advise privately and publicly held and multi-state businesses, tax-exempt organizations and individuals regarding all tax types, including individual and corporate income taxes, employment taxes, sales and use taxes, estate and gift taxes, excise taxes and property taxes.
