Summary
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act struck America on December 22, 2017, like a bolt of lightning and left behind it mountains of debris. 1050 pages of legislation, hurriedly drafted. Treasury and IRS are way back on their heels. Lists of uncertainties are stacked by the dozens. We humbly stand, hat in hand, and are left to sort it all.

Treasury and IRS have gotten to what they can and done mostly well with it. Still, we must blow through it all with our snowplows (or hail plows, if you live in Omaha).

This relevant, lively and screaming timely session tackles the hottest of TCJA issues (not including international), sensitizes you as to them and sends you capably forth back into battle.
