  1. It appears to me that there were multiple errors in the Tax Guide. It should be republished and sent out again with corrections

  2. First time I comment in my “on and off membership” of over thirty years. Please do not send out the Annual Personal Tax Planning before end of year with admitted faulty data. The world was screaming for source of calculators that would accurately track the proposals up until the signature. But, after passage and signing there is basically nothing that summarizes any and all changes. Financial journalists need to take time away from Holidays and publish what the readers need. Otherwise, it is waste of time to read your writings, especially the December , 2017 issue.
