Tax Aspects of the 2017 Tax Reform for Economic Growth and American Jobs

On April 26, 2017 the White House released an overview of their tax reform proposal entitled The 2017 Tax Reform for Economic Growth and American Jobs: The Biggest Individual and Business Tax Cut in American History, which outlines President Donald J.
