  • the suspension of the exclusion for qualified moving expense reimbursements from an employee’s income for tax years after December 1, 2017 and before January 1, 2026 (with exceptions for active duty U.S. Armed Forces members who move because of a permanent change of station);
  • limits on employers’ deductions for certain fringe benefits including meals and transportation commuting; and
  • the definition of items that aren’t tangible personal property for purposes of employee achievement awards.
