Tax Reform and the Pass-Through Deduction: Will You Be Eligible?

Date: Monday, April 23, 2018
Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM ET
Moderator: Mark Roberts, CEO, TechServe Alliance
Speakers: Kent A. Mason, Partner, Davis & Harman LLP
Julie Strandlie, Government Affairs Representative, TechServe Alliance
BJ Hoffman, Partner, Citrin Cooperman
Allison Brack, Partner, Citrin Cooperman

In December 2017, Congress passed a “once-in-a-generation” tax bill. Among the key provisions is a 20% deduction for some services businesses organized as pass-through entities (e.g., S Corps, LLCs). One of the burning questions is the eligibility of staffing firms for the deduction. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of key provisions of the new tax bill along with insights from a top DC tax attorney and TechServe’s lobbyist.

There will be time for a Q&A session following the presentation. TechServe Alliance webinars are recorded and distributed in follow-up emails to all registrants.

Disruption of the H-1B Talent Pipeline: What it Means for Your Company

Date: Tuesday, May 1, 2018
Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM ET
Moderator: Mark Roberts, CEO, TechServe Alliance
Speakers: Mike Hammond, Attorney, Hammond Law Group, LLC
Julie Strandlie, Government Affairs Representative, TechServe Alliance
Sue Thaden, President, Client Resources Inc.
Rick Ritzler, Chief Talent Officer, Information Control Corp.


With a shortage of IT and engineering professionals in many high-demand skill sets, the disruption of the H-1B talent pipeline could not come at a more inopportune time. IT and engineering staffing and solutions firms are experiencing historically high rates denials of H-1B petitions, substantially increased costs, greater uncertainty, and wary clients.

During this webinar, one of the leading immigration attorneys in the IT and engineering staffing space will provide an overview of the challenges confronting staffing firms who rely on H-1B talent (whether you sponsor or not) to meet client needs.

Following the overview and an update on coalition efforts to address these issues, two CEOs will join a panel discussion about the business implications for IT and engineering staffing and how they are responding to these disruptive forces.

There will be time for a Q&A session following the presentation. TechServe Alliance webinars are recorded and distributed in follow-up emails to all registrants.
