Midyear Tax Planning Letter addresses key changes in tax law

CHICAGO (June 18, 2014) – Accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) is encouraging clients to plan ahead for the 2014 tax season. Diligence now will give taxpayers time to understand and take advantage of a number of changes that have already been made to federal tax regulations and plan for provisions that could find their way into upcoming legislation. Baker Tilly discusses these opportunities and considerations in its recently published 2014 Midyear Tax Planning Letter.

With congress contemplating significant tax changes, including tax reform; states and local municipalities enacting and enforcing laws to generate revenue; and the IRS scrutinizing the foreign income of U.S.-based companies, the tax environment is presenting new challenges for individuals and businesses.
