After the start of the 2018 filing season, IRS invited NAEA to present the top tax reform implementation challenges NAEA members considered to be most important to taxpayers in relation to the recently enacted tax changes to individuals’ income and tax credits. IRS also invited NAEA to submit written comments on top-line individual tax reform implementation recommendations.

During IRS’s closed-session February 7 National Public Liaison Tax Reform Roundtable with tax practitioner and tax industry stakeholders, NAEA’s top three tax reform implementation recommendations affecting a broad scope of individual taxpayers included the following:

  • allocation of the $10,000 state and local property and income tax cap;
  • mortgage interest changes; and
  • meal and entertainment costs.

NAEA Executive Vice President Robert Kerr presented NAEA’s priorities in a meeting with IRS senior leadership and followed up with a letter to IRS Acting Commissioner David Kautter.

NAEA’s comments can be found in the letter here.
