TAX REFORM

The passage and enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) in December 2017 provided sweeping changes in virtually all areas of the federal tax code. The real estate industry was heavily impacted by the Act. FGMK provides proactive planning and compliance services in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
