In the most sweeping overhaul of the U.S. tax code in more than three decades, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law Dec. 22, 2017. Select changes in this new law affect the real estate industry more than others and should be taken into account by owners, developers, managers, and tenants.

At our February Breakfast Series Program, hear from Katz, Sapper & Miller’s Chad Halstead, who will discuss the TCJA’s impact on the economy, implications for businesses and individuals, how key components should be interpreted, and more. Chad will then join local economic development professionals Ian Nicolini of the Indy Chamber and Tim Cook of KSM Location Advisors for a panel discussion on how the new law affects development deals and economic incentives.
