Don't Take That Trip Just Yet: New Tax Law Complicates Business Travel

Although the recent change in tax rates under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) has gained a lot of attention, there's still a fair share of this reform that taxpayers are trying to sort through. One of those main changes involves limits and restrictions on employee perks and business travel.
