How the Federal Tax Overhaul Could Impact Our Sector

Location Title: 
Webinar

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are working to pass tax reform before the holidays — that’s just two weeks from today. Both houses have already passed their own versions of the bill, and now it’s up to a conference committee to refine a version that could be passed by both the House and Senate.

While we don’t yet know what final shape this tax bill will take, what we do know is that this tax overhaul stands to have a profound impact on nonprofits and grantmakers alike.

Join Johnson Center for Philanthropy for a FREE webinar on Thursday, December 14 as we address many of your questions — and how Congress is trying to answer them.
