Tyler DeHaan, discussing Tax Reform with panel

Tax reform (the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act) that took effect at the start of the year delivered a dose of financial juice to many households, despite economic hits they may have since suffered.

As 2018 winds down, taxpayers wonder if and how they might make last-minute adjustments to maximize returns. 

“I think there will be a lot of surprises in the spring,” says Scott Van Wyngarden, a Principal tax consultant who was on this month’s panel.
