I know itís probably way to early to think about this. But do you folks still recommend using CPA for a regional FO under this new tax laws? If so, any recommendations in the Chicago area?

The standard deduction for individuals has increased to $12,000 this year. You can't deduct union dues, M&IE allowances, or other work expenses anymore. Unless you own an expensive home or have some sort of side business, you probably won't gain anything from going to a CPA.
