The Tax Debate Moves To The States: The Tax Cuts And Jobs Act Creates Many Questions For States That Link To Federal Income Tax Rules

Abstract

Taxes defined Congress’s agenda for much of 2017, culminating in passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) in late December. Because of that new federal law, taxes will dominate many state legislative sessions in 2018. The TCJA changed many federal tax provisions, and how states choose to respond will have big effects on their tax revenue and taxes paid by their residents.
