Apply the latest tax law changes.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed by Congress and signed by President Trump, was the biggest overhaul of the Internal Revenue Code since 1986.

The Act created many unhappy surprises for individual taxpayers accustomed to income tax refunds. In addition, there have been a flurry of legislative changes as Congress tries to soften the impact of Covid 19 and other world events affecting taxpayers and the U.S. Economy.
