Tax reform for manufacturers: What you should know


President Trump has signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Act), the most significant overhaul of America’s tax system in decades.

While simplification, a stated goal of the reform, may have been achieved for some Form 1040 filers, manufacturers will need to navigate a maze of new, complex and interrelated tax provisions. The sooner you can understand these changes the sooner you can adapt and maintain your competitive edge in the marketplace.

This webinar led by Baker Tilly tax professionals highlights the tax reform provisions which impact manufacturing companies operating in C corporation structures, as well as flow-through tax structures.  The presentation also covered aspects of international tax reform that will affect multinational manufacturers.

The program also discusses key tax provisions in the Act and areas of the law that have the most significance for manufacturers. Topics for discussion include:

  • Repealed provisions formerly benefiting manufacturers
  • New provisions which provide for reducing taxable income
  • International tax shift to a territorial regime with the level-setting repatriation (or transition) tax
