Just like the life sciences industry is constantly changing and evolving, the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has done the same to the U.S. tax code. During this seminar, Shawn C. Henderson, CPA, MST of Withum’s Life Science Services Group and Joseph E. Hunt IV of Morse’s Corporate and Tax practice groups, will dive into details around tax reform in the life sciences industry.

They will discuss changes to pass-through income, corporate income tax, as well as the international tax considerations with a particular eye as to how tax reform will impact companies operating in the life sciences space.

This presentation will include life sciences tax reform discussions around:

  • Pass-through tax changes
  • Corporate tax changes
  • Business interest limitations
  • Depreciation changes
  • Tax deferrals on equity compensation
