A Word from the CEO
What a difference a month makes! In early February, the major U.S. stock indexes officially entered "correction" territory: a decline of more than 10%. We hadn't seen stocks decline like this in almost 10 years. See our article on market volatility to put these fluctuations into perspective.
As we enter 2018, the other big financial news is tax reform. Our article on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed into law on December 22, 2017, summarizes the changes most likely to affect you.
On another front, as expected, the housing allowance case brought by the Freedom from Religion Foundation was appealed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago on February 8, 2018. The JRB will continue to update you as the case progresses.
You don't need to navigate unfamiliar territory alone. Please contact the JRB to better understand the impact of market volatility and tax reform on your finances. You can reach us at 888-JRB-FREE (572-3733) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
