The American Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg (AMCHAM) has announced that it will be holding a lunch event on Wednesday 21 February 2018 from 1200 - 1400 at the premises of PwC Luxembourg (2 Rue Gerhard Mercator, L-2182 Luxembourg) on the topic of "US Tax Reform What It Means to US Taxpayers Abroad"; the event is being organised by AMCHAM's Tools4Lux Committee.
The US government has just passed the most significant tax reform in over 32 years. The last time tax reform was enacted was under President Ronald Reagan. Among other things, the top individual tax rate has dropped from 39.6% to 37% and, more significantly, lowers taxes for most individuals by consolidating income tax ranges from 7 tax brackets to 4. The individual tax reform changes will come into effect for tax year 2018 and sunset in 2025. There are many other changes that will be of importance to US taxpayers with some important considerations for those living and working overseas.
The key-note speaker will be Bill Zaleski, Managing Director, PwC Global Mobility Services. Bill is based in Denver, Colorado, and works closely with many large multinational and small companies in the area of global mobility tax and policy. He has spent a great deal of time over the last month helping his clients address the issues associated with US Tax Reform.
Other topics the event will discuss are as follows
• Overview of Key Individual Tax Reform Changes
• Tax Impacts to Employees Living Overseas
• Compensation Policy Impacts Employees Living Overseas
• Possible Future Tax Changes
This event should appeal to American citizens and all individuals liable to pay US taxes, HR personnel, relocation assistance experts, tax lawyers and tax preparation experts and interested journalists. The format will be interactive in nature and you will be encouraged to ask questions during or after the presentation.
