The end of the year is often an optimal time for tax planning, but you must be careful to avoid potential pitfalls along the way. Notably, any year-end tax strategies you implement should consider all the latest tax developments.
In particular, Congress has enacted significant tax legislation in recent years, beginning with the massive Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017. Many provisions in the TCJA are effective for 2018 through 2025. Soon after, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act was signed into law, designed primarily to enhance retirement savings.
During the height of pandemic, a trio of laws—the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) and the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)—provided various forms of tax relief. Another law passed in the summer of 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), created both new opportunities and obstacles for certain individuals and business entities.
