Symposium Speaker Spotlight
Leading up to our 2018 Symposium this fall, we are highlighting speakers each month.
Dominique Molina
Join us at this year's Symposium to hear from Dominique Molina, president and founder of the American Institute of Certified Tax Planners.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted at the end of 2017 significantly changed the business landscape. The tax rate for C corporations was lowered to 21% and the new Section 199A deduction offered pass-through entities the chance to significantly lower the rate at which they are taxed. But how do all these options work, and what option is best for what business?

Re-examining choice of entity determinations is at the top of the agenda for client meetings in 2018. This presentation will equip you with the knowledge and insights you need to lead those discussions.
