This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax professionals and advisers with an in-depth understanding of the IRS' final regulations on Section 199A and how to claim the qualified business income deduction. The panel will discuss the strict rules, requirements and limitations of 199A and the available planning techniques to maximize tax savings for pass-through entities.


The tax reform law added IRC Section 199A, providing some taxpayers a deduction of income attributable to certain qualified businesses. The IRS has issued final regulations providing some clarity to issues faced by taxpayers. This deduction creates a tax benefit to shareholders and members of pass-through entities by reducing their federal income tax rate. Individuals, trusts and estates are eligible to claim the deduction concerning their share of qualified business income, but only if they meet the strict requirements of 199A.

A taxpayer is entitled to a deduction of up to 20% of the taxpayer's qualified business income from pass-through entities and 20% of qualified REIT dividends, publicly traded partnership income and qualified cooperative dividends. The complexities of the rules for claiming the 199A deduction force tax professionals and advisers to make an early determination of a taxpayer's eligibility for the deduction, determine whether action should be taken to maximize the amount of the deduction, and implement planning strategies to secure every tax benefit available to the taxpayer.

Listen as our panel analyzes the requirements, limitations and implications of 199A, and provides tips for developing and implementing effective tax planning strategies to take advantage of the qualified business income deduction.
