The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Challenges and Solutions for Nonprofit Organizations in 2018

How many nonprofit organizations serving Dallas and North Texas can you name? Think of health care, education, the environment, the arts, animals, services to low-income people – and these are just a few of the many good causes served by nonprofits. How will they be affected by the recently enacted federal tax bill?

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act went into effect on January 1, 2018. This sweeping new tax law contains provisions that directly affect nonprofits, along with provisions whose impact, though indirect, will be substantial. Our speaker, nonprofit organizations attorney Liza Farrow-Gillespie, will present an overview of the new tax law and will suggest practical actions and strategies for North Texas nonprofits to maximize the new law’s advantages and to attempt to minimize its negative effects.
