2018 TAX LAWS - How will they affect you?


Tax Rates - While there are still 7 tax rates, most have been lowered from the 2017 rate.

  • 10%
  • 12% (lowered by 3%)
  • 22% (lowered by 3%)
  • 24% (lowered by 4%)
  • 32% (lowered by 1%)
  • 35%
  • 37% (lowered by 2.6%)

Note: Most married income thresholds are double the single, meaning the marriage penalty of prior years is eliminated for most tax brackets. Long-term capital gains tax rates remain unchanged for 2018 and range from 0% to 20%

Child Tax Credit (CTC) - The CTC doubles to $2,000 in 2018, with phase out of the benefit starting at $400,000 for married and $200,000 for unmarried taxpayers. The CTC is available for most parents with children 16 or younger. The law makes $1,400 of the credit a refundable credit, creates a new $500 family credit for dependents ineligible for the CTC.

Redefinition of the Kiddie Tax Rules - Unearned income of children 19 or younger (age 24 if a qualified student) will use the estate and trust tax rates to determine income tax. Former rules did not tax the first $1,050 of unearned income, taxed the next $1,050 at the child's tax rate, and taxed any excess at the parents' tax rate. The new rates range from 10% to 37%.

What is accounting service?

Accounting isn’t just about balancing the debits and the credits. Accounting is also about following the right methodology such as cash basis, accrual basis, GAAP basis, or tax basis. Accounting is all about reconciliations and following monthly, quarterly, or annual procedures.
