How the 2017 Tax Reform Act Affected Charitable Giving

Martin Shenkman and Chris Hoyt discuss how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act affected charitable giving, specifically regarding itemized deductions.

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act represented a major shakeup for wealth planners.

In this video, Marty Shenkman sits down with Professor Chris Hoyt to take a more focused view of what the changes to itemized deductions mean for your charitably inclined clients.
