We understand the confusion and questions that follow major tax law changes. From the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) to sharing the possible impact of other tax laws, we can help prepare you for all that comes your way.
Tax Reform Impact Calculator Helps Identify What’s Relevant
Due to the sweeping updates included in the TCJA, many taxpayers were left wondering if basic credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or unreimbursed employee business expenses are still available to claim.
Even though it’s the second tax season under the new TCJA rules, you may still be getting used to understanding how the changes affect your taxes. That’s where our tax reform calculator comes in.
With our calculator, the impact of tax reform is built into the relevant questions as well as the credit and deduction amounts. For example, the tax reform refund calculator knows to use the updated amount for the Child Tax Credit if you’re claiming your children on your taxes.
One difference with our new tax reform calculator is that you can now choose to get a quick calculation or use your W-2 information to get a more refined tax outcome estimate. If you don’t have time to finish your calculation, the tax reform calculator will let you save your work for later.
