In this interview, tax and securities law attorney Arthur Meyers
discusses the key provisions in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the tax reform which took effect in 2018, that affect individual taxation and stock compensation. He covers a range of tax-reform topics, including the changes in the withholding rates, the alternative minimum tax (AMT) provisions, and the new income triggers for the highest rate of long-term capital gains tax. He also explains the new tax-deferral opportunity for stock grants in private companies, plus the end of the performance-based exception to the $1 million corporate tax-deduction limit. The interview is a companion to our popular article
