Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017

Free for NACUA Members

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, enacted late last year, includes many changes that affect colleges and universities. Since passage of the law, higher education institutions have been working to learn about the terms applicable to them and to make operational changes that reflect those new requirements.

In this 30-minute complimentary NACUA Briefing, NACUA member Sean Scally, Senior Associate Counsel and Tax Attorney for Vanderbilt University, will speak with Liz Clark, Senior Director of Federal Affairs for the National Association of College and University Business Officers, about the terms of the new law applicable to colleges and universities, those areas where additional guidance from Congress or the U.S. Treasury Department is needed, and steps affected institutions should be taking to comply with the new law.
