On May 23, 2018, the IRS released Notice 2018-54 stating further guidance is coming to address the deductibility of state and local tax payments for federal income tax purposes. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) limited the amount of state and local taxes an individual can deduct to $10,000. As a result, some state legislatures have adopted or are considering legislative proposals allowing taxpayers to make payments to specified entities in exchange for a tax credit against state and local taxes owed.  The proposed legislation will clarify the relationship between federal charitable contribution deductions and the new statutory limitation on the deduction of state and local taxes...
