Nonprofits and the New Tax Cuts


The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act brings both pros and cons for nonprofits. Bottom line: there’s an unintended consequence of simplifying the tax code.

What awaits the nonprofit in Trump's America? I’m getting slammed with requests from Trump supporters to “give the guy a chance.” And believe me, I’m [...]
