Meals and Entertainment: To Deduct, or not to Deduct?

Earlier in the year, we released two tax law guides to help you understand what the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act changed for businesses and individuals. You can find these here if you haven’t seen them already: What the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act means for you or your business.

To follow up on the conversation we started in January, we’d like to present this, our third guide (and accompanying video); covering the key provisions of the new tax law that apply to employers in the area of meals and entertainment deductions.

Keep in mind that this, like the other guides, is a broad overview meant as a starting point for discussion. Many of these laws have subtle nuances and exceptions. For specific questions on what they may mean for you, please reach out to us at taxtalk@ellinandtucker.com. One of our tax experts will be glad to help.
