On December 22, President Trump signed into law the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (P.L. 115-97), a sweeping tax reform law that will entirely change the tax landscape. The legislation reflects the largest major tax reform in over three decades.

This comparison describes those four changes and a number of the Act’s other changes that could affect tax-exempt organizations.
