Democrats finally managed to push a major tax reconciliation bill across the finish line. It is important both for what it does include and what it doesn’t. While it makes a handful of significant tax changes, many important priorities remain unfinished. This session will cover the important new tax provisions enacted under the bill, and the outlook for the rest of the agenda, including restoring research expensing, extending bonus depreciation, implementing the global minimum tax, and enacting retirement tax incentives.
Speakers: Steve Bell, CPA, Managing Director, and Matthew Libeg, CPA, State & Local Tax Manager, Grant Thornton, LLP
Speaker: Krista Sermon, Esq., Manager, Office of Law and Policy, Comptroller of Maryland
This session will cover various policies and procedures the Comptroller’s Office will be implementing for the coming tax season based on recent legislative changes.
