Congress just passed the first major tax reform initiative in over 30 years. These changes will significantly impact your firm as well as the engineering industry.

Tax rates have changed, existing deductions and other provisions have been eliminated, and new tax benefits have been created. Whether yours is a C corporation, S corporation, partnership, or LLC – all A/E firms will feel the effect of these fast-approaching changes. You’ll want to make sure you and your executive team understand and are able to manage the legal and financial ramifications going forward.

Please join us and Marc Gerson – a former tax counsel on the House Ways and Means Committee – for a comprehensive overview of the business provisions in the new law and what they’ll mean to you and your bottom-line in the  months ahead.


  • Learn about the impact of lower tax rates for C corporations, new individual rates and a new tax deduction that will affect passthrough firms
  • Review other key changes – such as the elimination of the Section 199 deduction, limits on the state and local tax deduction, and changes to the alternative minimum tax – that could affect your firm
  • Find out what's next in terms of technical corrections and administrative guidance

About the speaker:

Marc J. Gerson rejoined Miller & Chevalier after serving as tax counsel to the majority staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means.  His practice focuses on federal tax policy, providing strategic advice and representation to clients before Congress, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and the Internal Revenue Service. He also maintains a sophisticated domestic and international tax planning and controversy practice.
