Year-end tax planning now must adhere to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that made major changes in tax rules for individuals and businesses across Arizona and the country.

Individual tax planning still requires a review of each taxpayer’s particular situation. Learn more about these insights at Thomson Reuters.
