Does the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Influence the Value of My Business?
Whoever thought that the House and Senate bills representing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) would ever be reconciled and become law, or at the very least, would be signed into law before the end of calendar year 2017? Seemingly, the stock market placed a high probability on that event. That bet, placed by the market on a more business-favorable tax law change, is believed by many (but not all) to have been a significant contributor to the 20%-30% run-up in the stock market witnessed since November 2016. One notable disbeliever, Warren Buffet, is quoted to have said in early January 2018 that the magnitude of the tax cut is not reflected in the stock market yet.
