Key Financial Data for 2018

February 28, 2018

Congress passed a new tax law in December, and taxpayers are now trying to figure out how it will affect them.  According to the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, approximately 80% of taxpayers will see a tax cut in 2018 under the new law.  Taxpayers need to understand the new tax law, and how they can take advantage of the changes based on their personal income and expenses.

To help with that framework, we are releasing our Key Financial Data - information you need at your fingertips so you can make well-informed decisions about your money.  

Highlights include the following:


  • 2018 Tax Rate Schedule – new tax brackets and rates
  • Gift and Estate Tax exclusion – the exclusion doubled, which is important for high net worth individuals and families
  • Retirement Plan Contribution Limits for employees and business owners
  • Standard Deductions and Personal Exemption update
  • Investment taxes, including capital gain and qualified dividend rates
  • Social Security, Medicare, and Long Term Care updates


Our goal is to help people to use their money to have the lives they want.  We know that when you understand how to make a financial decision, you can be more confident about those decisions.  If you’d like to learn more about how we design financial plans for our clients, please visit us at or call us at (214) 764-1977.
