New Tax Law Carries Implications for Private Funds
Hedge Fund Law Report
On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act), into law. The Tax Act makes the most significant revisions to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) since the 1986 tax reform. A recent Proskauer program offered an overview of the provisions of the Tax Act most likely to affect private fund managers. The program featured Proskauer partners Arnold P. May and Amanda H. Nussbaum, along with senior counsel Brian D. Huber and Marguerite R. Lombardo. This article highlights the key takeaways from their presentation.
