The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – Nuts & Bolts From a Tax Controversy Perspective


The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 represented one of the most comprehensive and complex pieces of tax legislation in more than a generation. Its scope and reach touch virtually every corner of how businesses operate. For some, the architecture of the TCJA is still coming into focus. This session is intended to introduce key pieces of the TCJA architecture to in-house tax professionals who have yet to encounter live TCJA-related issues in their own company examinations. What are the central components of the TCJA, how do they fit together and what are some of the tax controversy issues that could arise?

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the central framework of the TCJA, including the new system of international tax for US -based companies.
  • Identify key comparisons and contrasts that the TJCA has introduced into the Internal Revenue Code, especially for the business tax community.
  • Develop an awareness for some of the potential tax controversy areas.
