Access TCJA Developments by Topic

KPMG's Tax Reform: Developments & Analysis Guide, a web-based index, makes it easy to locate post-TCJA enactment developments, resources, and reports (as released in TaxNewsFlash-Tax Reform) by topic in one place.

On May 15, at KPMG's 2019 U.S. Cross-Border Tax Conference, John Gimigliano discussed what's happening with regard to U.S. tax reform implementation with Jennifer Acuna, former Chief Tax Counsel for the Senate Finance Commitee, and Tom West, former Tax Legislative Counsel, Office of Tax Policy, U.S. Department of Treasury.
