Taxes and the Construction Industry - What Changed?

Make strategic decisions that could yield tax savings and avoid surprises.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 is a game changer for many industries but the impacts for the construction and engineering industry are particularly striking. Some of the changes create opportunities for savings, others may increase tax liabilities or require changes to business practices and tax planning. Now is the time for construction business owners and executives, their consultants and advisors, as well as architects and engineers to get a solid handle on the changes and make strategic decisions that could yield tax savings and avoid surprises.
