healthcare The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was the most robust overhaul to the United States’ tax code in over 30 years. Along with this came many complicated provision changes that can make it difficult for businesses to navigate the U.S. tax system.

Recognizing the challenging environment of tax reform, the MBS tax policy team offers services to small businesses, large companies and trade associations to help achieve their business goals and plan for future laws, technical corrections and regulations. Our professionals offer decades of experience dating back to the 1986 tax reform, and provide expertise for domestic, multinational and international corporations with a variety of research, updates and in-depth analysis to make informed business decisions.
