The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and SECURE Act 2.0 both contain tax law changes that many individual tax clients will be interested in. The IRA includes changes involving energy-related credits and credits for energy-efficient personal autos. These changes are immediately relevant to individual clients and as such, tax practitioners should be familiar with them.
