Hudson Community Foundation and the Hudson Library & Historical Society will host Tax Cuts and Jobs Act information panel Aug. 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the library.

The session will first involve a 20-minute presentation by members of HCF’s Professional Advisor Council. Of the 10 total members in HCF’s PAC, five will present on the panel, including Matt Hochstetler, Attorney at Day Ketterer, Ltd.; Tom Judge, CPA, MBA, and founding partner of JLP CPAs, LLC; Keith Smith, first vice president, Morgan Stanley; Rob Strachan, principal, Strachan-Novak Insurance Services; and Rich Warfield, CPA, Partner, DKC-Warfield and Company CPAs, Ltd.

Following the panelists’ presentation, there will be an open forum for questions moderated by HCF President Lori McCleese.

"There are a number of significant changes in the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, and we want members of our community to have the opportunity to ask questions of our Professional Advisor Council experts," McCleese said. "Hudson is a very charitable community, and we hope to share the ‘tax smart’ ways for people to continue supporting their favorite charities."

HCF’s PAC members share Hudson Community Foundation’s commitment to investing in the local community and are dedicated to public service and education regarding charitable giving. Council members meet three times per year, providing a forum to discuss new initiatives of HCF and provide information on both estate planning strategies and charitable gifts.

By organizing this presentation, HCF raises awareness for charitable giving, service and education opportunities, as well as connect possible donors to community needs and issues.

"It’s important for people to be thinking about this now, rather than in April, so that they are making good financial decisions in light of the changes," said McCleese. "We encourage anyone in the community who is interested to attend."
