  • Speaking

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created new issues and opportunities for businesses and individuals. Stay on top of the changes with this deep-dive webinar on one specific tax reform topic: the implications of Minnesota nonconformity. Although Congress enacted major federal tax reform -- dramatically revising the Internal Revenue Code -- Minnesota isn't expected to conform to any of those federal changes for 2017 or 2018 tax years. Examine the key differences between Minnesota and federal income tax law for 2017 and 2018. Find out how to report on those differences for Minnesota individual and business income tax returns.
