The Arlington Committee of 100 fosters open and vigorous discussion of issues involving all facets of community life in Arlington. The Committee's monthly forums are open to all and provide a non-partisan setting in which issues of local, regional, and state interest are addressed by experts, with audience participation in lively Q&A sessions.

Next Program: April 11, 2018

What will be the impact of the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act on Arlington?

Congress passed and the President signed a major revision to the federal tax laws in December, titled “2017 Jobs and Tax Cut Act.”  The Act was the largest change to Federal tax law since 1986 and contained provisions affecting individuals of all income levels and a wide-range of businesses.  Because of the law’s size, many have raised questions about what impacts it will have for taxpayers and for other levels of government — particularly from changes in rules for deducting mortgage interest and state and local taxes.


As we get ready for “tax day” in April, join the Committee of 100 for an initial assessment of the impact of the Act on Virginia, on Arlington, and on your bottom line. 




Ron Kutscher, former Deputy Director of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 

Carla de la Pava, Arlington County Treasurer who will discuss county-level impacts, and 

Larry Axelrod, a tax attorney and partner with Ivins, Phillips & Barker, will provide a perspective for the corporate and individual taxpayer
