The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017: What You Need to Know


Catherine Lightfoot, CPA, CHBC

Director of EEPB, PC's Healthcare Group



The “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017” is being called one of the largest changes to tax law in over 30 years.  Every type of taxpayer will be affected by the changes, from individuals to small and large companies.  No one has escaped the tax form.  Some of the changes started as early as September 2017.  The rest are all in effect as of January 1, 2018.  This presentation will help you understand what has changed in the law and the impact it will have on taxpayers.



Catherine's extensive experience spanning 30+ years and is well known for her proactive approach. In the role as Director over EEPB's Healthcare Services she provides accounting and finance oversight to her clients augmented with internal controls and strategic advice to management.  Not your typical CPA, Catherine advises her healthcare client's in a timely manner with oversight on finance and accounting to enable physicians to manage their practices. Catherine provides accurate timely financial statements, ongoing cash flow projections, as well as design and maintenance of the financial structures she greatly accelerates her clients' ability to minimize taxes while increasing profitability and cash flow.


Catherine's proficiency in Practice Management firmly instills 2 major beliefs:

2. You can always improve profitability & cash-flow
