Learn how the new tax code affects your biz-tech deductions

Tax season is always scary, and with this year’s new code, the fear is elevating. Don’t worry, help is on the way. In this Komando on Demand podcast, we'll hear from accountant Howell Cheek with Sigrist, Cheek, Potter & Huyser. He can talk about the philosophy of taxes dating as far back as Plato (but don’t worry, he doesn’t).

Howell offers easy-to-understand, concise tips about medical and charitable deductions, as well as the increase in the standardized deduction.

He also talks about which business-tech deductions have been eliminated and why. Howell breaks it all down for us.
