As an experience US tax accountant, Mark and his team work within tax legislation to help people grow their savings and minimize tax burdens. His latest article details five types of deductions they may have previously counted on to reduce their taxable income that have disappeared in 2018. These include

1) Moving Expenses
2) Unreimbursed Job Expenses
3) Tax Preparation Fees
4) Personal Exemptions and
5) Subsidized Parking and Transit Reimbursements for Employees

For example, "repealed for tax years 2018 through 2025, the personal exemption enabled individual taxpayers to reduce taxable income ($4,050 in 2017). Each household dependent was able to take the deduction as well. While the standard deduction did increase significantly ($12,000 for individuals, $24,000 for married taxpayers filing jointly, $18,000 for heads of household) to compensate, some taxpayers may still lose out."

It's imperative to understand the changes introduced by tax reform in order to maximize tax savings while staying compliant with all requirements put on taxpayers by the IRS and Canadian Revenue Agency.
