Inside The Personal and Professional Implications Of New Tax Law


The new tax law’s expected implications for professional and personal tax returns will be explored during a Thursday Distance Learning webinar offered by MFM, the Media Financial Management Association.

Scheduled for April 19 from 1pm-2pm Eastern, the online educational session will be presented by Howard Wagner, a partner in National Tax Services at Crowe Horwath LLP, a public accounting, consulting, and technology firm.

Wagner will review the potential impact of the new tax law for the media industry, including its treatment of business expenditures, as well as its implications for personal returns and tax planning.

“With 2017 tax returns filed, now is the time to ensure media businesses and their employees are fully aware of how the new tax law will impact their 2018 taxes and expenditures,” said Mary M. Collins, President/CEO of MFM and BCCA. “With the help of Howard’s vast experience in federal tax law, our attendees will get the latest IRS guidance and additional insights to inform upcoming business and personal spending decisions.”

A frequent speaker about federal tax issues to national, regional, and local tax groups, Wagner has been quoted on tax matters in numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and Barron’s.
