The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed into law on December 22, 2017, has been described – quite accurately – as the most sweeping tax overhaul in more than 30 years. In addition to significant rate reductions and other changes that will affect all U.S. businesses, the new law contains a number of provisions written specifically to affect insurance companies. On July 10th, Dan Kusaila and Al DiGiacomo, insurance tax practitioners at Crowe will team up with Rich Burness, Head of Tax at Athene Holdings, Inc. to provide a detailed explanation of these changes, lessons learned since enactment date, and an analysis of uncertainties and demands that insurance companies face in a post tax reform environment.
