The fringe benefits provision removes a deduction for employer-provided benefits such as transportation, parking and on-premises athletic facilities. ASAE contends this is a new tax on an expenditure, not a revenue-generating activity.
ASAE also pointed out that some cities, including Washington, D.C., New York, and San Francisco, have mandated that employers provide pre-tax mass transit benefits, so employers in those cities do not have the option of changing those benefits to avoid being taxed. ASAE has suggested that special consideration be given for employers in localities that mandate transportation benefits.
ASAE has also shared its concerns about the transportation fringe benefits provision with the House Ways and Means Committee members. The Ways and Means Committee has been holding a series of hearings in recent weeks to assess how the new tax law is working.

Residents heard for the first time Tuesday night two new development proposals being pitched for a 24-acre plot of land owned by the city of Austin off McKalla Place that is also being eyed for a Major League Soccer stadium.
The Gracywoods Neighborhood Association, located northeast of the site at 10414 McKalla Place, Austin, hosted the two development groups to pitch their ideas to residents and council members Leslie Pool and Alison Alter, who both attended to learn more about the concepts.

For many commercial tenants, negotiating a good lease or lease renewal against an experienced agent or landlord can be a challenge. While an entrepreneur focuses on marketing and managing, savvy real estate agents and brokers are specialized salespeople. Their job is to sell tenants on leasing their location at the highest possible rental rate. Whether you are leasing a new location for the first time or negotiating a lease renewal for your business, here are two money-saving tips.
More American real estate developers could be poised to enter the era of the net-zero-energy building, industry experts predicted during ULI's 2018 Spring Meeting in Detroit.

The ability to cater to diverse employee needs is the complexity of problems that organizations face today. The most successful organizations are now turning their attention to employee well-being as a way to gain emotional, financial and competitive advantage.

It's my belief that no matter how long people are at work, almost everyone wants to feel part of something greater than themselves. They want to know that their work makes a difference to the organization. We all have that need and thrive when we are part of a community. Zingerman's Community of Businesses is that kind of organization, and Ari Weinzweig and other members of Zingerman's create that community of belonging every day for themselves and their customers.
The rise of new technologies, the sporadic nature of the markets, and the shift in consumer values are all playing their part in the evolution of product marketing. This is particularly true of the property industry, where a competitive market and picky consumers are creating new challenges for the marketing managers who are tasked with filling vacant properties, winning investors, and making their organisations stand out from the rest.
Real estate development and investing isn’t just about looking for a good deal from one day to the next. It’s also about keeping a close eye on the markets, identifying the relevant market trends and deciding when to make your next move with a subtle approach or an aggressive one.
