With tax season upon us, many Americans are being forced to learn what the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) (deemed the most consequential tax reform in a generation) really entails and its impact on a business’ bottom line. While the changes in income tax brackets has been most heavily covered in the media, many employers are surprised to learn that a number of provisions in the Act may also affect a company’s employment practices. Below is a summary of the effects of the Act that most directly impact employers:
|Deduction/Credit||Pre-Tax Cuts and Jobs Act||Post-Tax Cuts and Jobs Act|
|Family and Medical Leave Credit|
|Meals & Entertainment Expenses|
|Sexual Harassment Costs Subject to Nondisclosure Agreements|
|Qualified Bicycle Commuting Exclusion|
|Exclusion for Moving/Relocation Expense Reimbursements and Moving/Relocation Expense Deduction|
