    2018 Tax Changes and How They Will Affect Your Business

    Presented by Jason Osser, CPA

    2018 brought some big changes to the federal tax laws. Jason Osser, CPA will explain how they will effect your LLC or Sole Proprietor business. 

    Jason Osser graduated from State University of New York at Oneonta with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Economics, and from Binghamton University with a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resource Management.

    After relocating to the Washington, DC metropolitan area in 1996, Jason held a series of accounting positions, from staff accountant to controller, until he decided to own and run his own business. Since leaving corporate America nearly 15 years ago, Jason has been a successful franchise business owner, an accounting and small business expert, a Certified Public Accountant, a real estate investor, and an adjunct professor at local colleges. Jason’s diverse experience enables him to bring insights into how to create a growing and successful small business through disciplined accounting best practices and tax planning.

    Although real estate investing started out as a personal hobby, Jason has since expanded that investment portfolio and shared his knowledge and experience with others along the way. Particularly, Jason is the spokesperson for Long and Foster Real Estate, giving seminars and presentations on how to invest in real estate using Self-Directed IRAs.

    Jason has recently published "Riding QuickBooks to the Promised Land" - How the worlds most successful entrepreneurs, use the worlds most popular accounting software, to make more money in less time. This book is available on Amazon and debuted as a #1 Amazon bestseller!

    To stay current with the latest rules, regulations, and tax law changes, Jason frequently attends conferences and seminars, and pays for his staff to do the same. In addition to teaching classes and seminars to give back to the community, Jason has been a member of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce for over 10 years. He has also served both as treasurer and board member of Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN).
