RE:     New Tax Law Changes

     As 2017 comes to an end, you have most likely read that Washington has passed new tax laws. It might be beneficial to review your tax situation.

     The major change for individual taxpayers that itemize is that the state tax and the property tax deduction will be capped at $10,000 for 2018. For some clients, it might be beneficial to pay your real estate tax to the extent you are able before 12/31/17. In addition, it may be beneficial to pay all of your state tax payments before 12/31/17 also. In general, this will allow a deduction in 2017 that would not be allowed in 2018. This does not apply if you are subject to the alternative minimum tax in 2017.

     In addition, there will be no deduction allowed for investment management fees or tax preparation fees in 2018. Some of you can deduct these on your tax returns in 2017. You can speak with us if it will be beneficial for you to prepay investment fees and/or tax preparation fees before 12/31/17.

     These are general suggestions that apply to many of our clients that are contacting us. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your individual tax situation, please contact us. In general we are available until the end of this year should you have questions regarding your individual tax situation for 2017.

     We hope you have a wonderful remainder of the holiday season. We look forward to seeing you in 2018.
