    I was recently on the CBS News Los Angeles discussing what GOP Tax Plan means for Los Angeles.  Who will the Tax reform help. Who will end up paying more in taxes. Sadly, the answer is likely man of you reading this will be hurt by many provisions in this GOP tax bill.

    A few areas of concern Los Angeles with the GOP Tax Plan:

    -The Mortgage Deduction is Limited.  $750,000 may be Mansion in Kansas, but it is a dirt lot in much of Los Angeles.

    -Limiting of the State and Local Tax Deduction.  Things state taxes and property taxes.

    -Elimination of deduction for unreimbursed employee expenses. This on is especially rough on those in the entertainment industry. Have an agent or manager? This change will cost you a ton.

    -Limiting of Home Equity Lines of Credit Tax Deduction

    Speaker Paul Ryan is telling us success stories of people who are getting an extra $1.50 per week.  What would you do with a whopping $1.50 per week? I may sound like I’m complaining, but I wish I was lucky enough to be getting $1.50 per week, rather than paying thousands more.  The GOP Tax Bill literally seems to try and punish the hard working people of cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco New York and San Diego.

    Be Proactive and do what you can to keep more of your hard earned money.  Tax Planning Los Angeles is the name of the game for 2018.
