Year-end planning for the new rules on deductions
Abstract: One of the areas most affected by the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) is planning for deductions. This article explains how the TCJA might change year-end tax planning and which deductions make sense under the new rules. The article looks at itemizing and discusses home-related interest, medical expense and charitable contribution deductions, among others. A sidebar lists the itemized deductions that the TCJA has suspended.
