More specifically, it takes the expertise of Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting and translates said expertise into consumable, reader friendly information.  The fact that it’s regularly updated over the tax season, to account for changes, makes it immune to becoming outdated.

Expert, yet plain spoken, Tax Cuts and Jobs Act resource

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act provisions, effective generally for the first time on 2018 tax returns, promise to make the 2019 tax filing season one of the most challenging in many years, with changes that will affect virtually all taxpayers. Treasury and the IRS have been working throughout 2018 and into 2019 to adopt implementing regulations.

According to Mark Luscombe, JD, LLM, CPA and Principal Federal Tax Analyst for Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting, “Taxpayers will find much has changed in the tax law for both individuals and businesses, and those changes will present both challenges and planning opportunities to try to maximize the tax benefits.” The 2019 WBOT materials result from our deep domain expertise and offer a trusted resource that members of the media can leverage to better inform their stories and ensure their audiences receive analysis and guidance.
