The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary organization dedicated to supporting patients and caregivers living with a blood cancer. The organization focuses on delivering the mission through three pillars: research, patient access and advocacy.

Deciding on the Choice of Business Entity Under TCJA
The cornerstone of P.L. 115-97, known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the reduction of the maximum corporate tax rate of 35% to a flat 21%. For businesses being conducted as flow-through entities, such as S corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships, the new law permits a deduction of up to 20% of qualified business income (QBI), effectively reducing the top tax rate paid by the individual owner from 37% to 29.6%.

Bringing Tradition and Innovation Together
The Chemours Company moved into its newly renovated, state-of-the-art global headquarters in the historic DuPont Building in January, renewing its commitment to the City of Wilmington and beginning a new chapter in the young company’s four-year history. The move also marks a new beginning for the 106-year-old DuPont Building, a registered historic landmark which occupies an entire city block in downtown Wilmington.
