BANGOR — How will the new tax law affect me?

That’s the question everyone is asking about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. While the new law won’t affect 2017 taxes, it will have a financial impact on the choices we all make in 2018.

To help you get the answers you need about how the law will affect your finances or your business, join BDN business reporter Lori Valigra in “Decoding the New Tax Law” 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, March 15, at Sea Dog Brewing Co., 26 Front St., for a free lunchtime conversation with tax and investment experts.

Laura Emack, CPA. Emack has 37 years of experience as a CPA, and for the past eight years has served as quality control manager for financial statements at Haverlock, Estey & Curran, LLC, in Hampden. She is a former board member and chairperson of the Finance Authority of Maine.

Rachel M. Trafton, attorney. In her work in Rudman Winchell’s Maine Elder Law Firm, Trafton focuses primarily on estate planning and elder law including asset protection planning, guardianships and conservatorships, MaineCare planning and applications, probate administration, and special needs planning.
