Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
As mentioned in the November Newsletter, the U.S. House and Senate released their own versions of the tax reform bills. The U.S. Senate’s version, “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” bill has moved to the Senate floor for debate. The bill released by the House of Representatives passed a vote in the House last month. These steps are an important breakthrough to both bills becoming laws.
As the end of the year approaches, we would like to remind everyone of upcoming conferences such as the BOMA International 2018 Winter Business Meeting & National Issues Conference, January 28-31, 2018 in Washington, D.C. and the 2018 Medical Office Buildings and Healthcare Real Estate Conference May 9-11, 2018 in Houston, TX. Both conferences are great opportunities to connect with experts and peers and gather new insights on the real estate industry.
