No Wonder Millennials Hate Capitalism - The New York Times
Millennials, a generation maligned as entitled whiners, would be particularly hard hit. As Ronald Brownstein argued in The Atlantic, the rich people who would benefit from the measures passed by the House and the Senate tend to be older (and whiter) than the population at large. Younger people would foot the bill, either through higher taxes, diminished public services or both. They stand to inherit an even more stratified society than the one they were born into.

Changes to Capital Gains Taxes Could Radically Alter the Calculus for Home Sellers - Zillow Research
But plans proposed recently by both the U.S. House and Senate would change the residency requirement to five of the past eight years – a change that, had it been enacted last year, would have affected 11 percent of U.S. home sellers. Were these laws enacted, an owner of the nation’s median-valued property ($202,700 as of September) that decided to sell after four years – a year shy of the five-year rule currently proposed – would have a capital gains tax bill of $2,363, compared to $0 currently.

The Republican Plan To Raise Your Capital Gains Taxes
If one of their fund managers sells a stock in his fund, he can choose which tax lots he wants to sell. Yet if you own the identical holdings, and you sell the same stock, you can't. This tilts the table in favor of the mutual funds.

Instead of leveling the tax playing field between traditional mutual funds and exchange-traded funds, like the bill should have done, Congress is instead proposing to change the tax code to benefit mutual fund behemoths like Fidelity and Schwab at the expense of the individual investor.

Sports Direct and its staffing agencies paid workers £1m too little | Business | The Guardian
HM Revenue & Customs said this policy amounted to a uniform and a deduction from pay to cover the clothing took pay below the legal minimum. Primark has since introduced a more flexible policy and provides some clothing free.

A Primark spokesperson said: “The average amount paid back per employee was £23.75 and relates to a workwear policy that was changed in 2016.”

How HR Can Help Employees During Tax Season (Legally)
Filling out someone’s W-4–or any of their other forms– is illegal. 

Giving advice isn’t. However, if you do give advice you could be made liable in the highly unlikely case someone might sue you for giving them bad advice. 

That being said, if you were trained on what and how to give this advice, I would feel comfortable as an organization on providing this advice and taking on that slight risk. 

Really, I guess what I’m saying is…if you’re nervous at all–consider going outside for some help. And it doesn’t need to be super-expensive either.

Top companies today are providing tax advice and tax help to their employees in a number of ways.

Ten Years Out
December 5 2017 | FT | By Gideon Rachman, James Kynge, Vanessa Houlder and Richard Waters.

From massive migration to prying governments, businesses will have to weather startling changes over the next decade.....It can be difficult, when assailed daily by news of populism, terrorism and cyber hacking, to look to anything beyond the next crisis. Yet business leaders need to focus on the future. What, for example, does it mean for employers that by 2027, Africa’s population will have grown by a third and Europe’s will have flatlined? How will companies cope when governments expect them to gather more staff data and play ever larger roles in enforcing tax laws?

In Ten Years Out, four senior FT journalists outline what they see as the biggest challenges that no chief executive will be able to ignore. They also provide some tips on how companies can best prepare themselves for the changes that are coming.
