How Changes To Tax Laws Will Affect Your Tax Return This Year

by 3 months ago

Presented by TurboTax Live…

In late 2017, Congress passed the most sweeping changes to the tax code in the past 30 years. The bill went into effect on January 1, 2018, which means that it will affect the taxes of most taxpayers for the 2018 tax year.

The new laws and amendments created a document of well over 1,000 pages.

Thankfully, you took that long weekend in July and read every single page in preparation for this tax season.

Wait, you didn’t?!? You didn’t read a single line? Did you even know new tax laws were passed?

Not to worry, you’re not alone in being mostly unaware.

Luckily, TurboTax and TurboTax Live are available to help explain these new tax laws and get you the most significant return in 2019.

Who Is Affected By The New Tax Laws?

These changes specifically affect people who:

  • fall into a specific tax bracket
  • people who own a home
  • married couples and people with a family
  • anyone who invests their money
  • full time students

Essentially, the new laws affect everyone!

In other words, these are the people who actually did sit down and read over those tax changes word-for-word.

In addition to changing the tax brackets themselves, the new law doubles the standard deduction amount.
