    SPC members have long expressed an interest in an additional channel for unstructured networking and just plain schmoozing about their business triumphs and trials. We launched our Meetups a while back, and have received very positive feedback from those participating ... and so we’re pleased to announce our next Burlington Lunchtime Meetup, to be held Friday, January 11, at 1:00 p.m. 

    For those who haven't yet participated,there is no registration fee and you don't have to be a member to attend. Please register on Meetup so we can push tables together for everyone. When you arrive, find yourself something appealing to nosh on, settle at the cash register, and join the group.

    We’ve picked 1:00 p.m. on a Friday as our start time to avoid the crush and let people take as much time as they feel they can afford…and maybe start a new conversation they can pick up later!

    Making Cents of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act: Important Tax Changes for Individuals and Businesses

    What impact will the tax law changes have on your financial and tax planning in 2019? Join us for dinner on January 14 to hear Ron Loberfeld, CPA, explain what the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act means to you and your clients.

    Ron will cover the key provisions of the tax law and how the changes will affect you and your business. He’ll also discuss provisions of the law that have been clarified during 2018. Topics to be covered include:

    • Changes in tax brackets
    • Changes in various deductions
    • Changes for C-Corporate tax rate
    • 20% pass-through deduction
    • AMT changes
    • Like-kind exchanges

      Ron and his firm provide accounting, audit, and tax services to individuals and small businesses. Like all SPC meetings, this one will be interactive, and Ron will be glad to respond to your questions.
