Tax Reform and its Impact on Health Care and Senior Living Finance

Tax reform had a wild ride in 2017. Reform advocates were bullish as the year began, citing one-party control of Washington, a president willing to take risks, and a speaker of the house with a detailed plan as reasons why a package would pass by March. By mid-year, following multiple failed attempts to repeal Obamacare and a litany of oxygen-sucking scandals, tax reform passing in 2017 suddenly seemed far-fetched. That outlook changed again, however, as the year ended with a mad dash by the GOP to notch a legislative win. The result was a comprehensive tax reform bill on the president’s desk by Christmas. Below, we take a look at key provisions in the bill and detail how seniors housing and health care providers looking for capital financing in 2018 can be prepared for the impending changes.
