PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Republican tax reform law went into effect this week. So what will it mean for tax payers going forward?

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act overhauls to the US tax Code, cutting corporate taxes rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, cuts income tax rates, doubles the standard deduction, and eliminates personal exemptions.

“People will see that when they see withdrawals from their paychecks,” said tax attorney Nikki Johnson-Huston.

She joins Temple economics professor Douglas Webber and nonprofit CEO Otis Bullock to discuss the impact of the law on families, businesses, charities, and more on Flashpoint.

“Winners right now are big corporations, to the lesser extent, small businesses,” said Webber.

“I think it’s bad for nonprofits like mine, but I think it’s also bad for middle class donors,” said Bullock.
