  • Reductions in income tax rates for most individuals
  • Reductions or eliminations in certain itemized deductions
  • Increases in the standard deductions
  • Changes to certain child and dependent tax incentives
  • Almost doubling the estate tax exemption


Business Tax Returns:

  • Reduction to the corporate income tax rate
  • More rapid business write-offs for capital expenditures
  • A new 20% deduction for owners of certain pass-through business entities
