Every four years we hear about many interesting and varied tax reform proposals. These range from tweaks to the current system to new taxes such as on value added or wealth. Proposals also include expanded credits as well as universal basic income (UBI) for low-income or sometimes for everyone. This webinar explains the tax proposals of presidential candidates, how to evaluate them, and how to help clients understand how they work.
