Morey and Macarena are back this week with information about the current tax reform in the U.S. The tax cuts are designed to get unemployment numbers down, and more people working. Morey describes the tax bill and the healthcare bill as having close ties, which is causing the delay in Congress passing both. Morey also cautions business owners and the self-employed when increasing their business expense deductions. Remember, you increase the chance of an IRS audit when you increase your deductions.
