Customer Question
Will my filing of...

Will my filing of federal taxes by the April deadline be according to the current set of laws (e.g. unlimited deduction of state and local taxes) or will the new "reformed" tax bill and its new rules hold sway? Will 2017 be like 2016, i.e. the current system?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

No. I simply want to know which rules will govern my 2017 return
