Program Materials

This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax counsel, accountants, and other advisers with an in-depth understanding of the IRS' final regulations under Section 199A and the mechanics of calculating and claiming the qualified business income deduction. The panel will discuss the strict rules, requirements, and limitations of IRC Section 199A and provide a roadmap through many of the available planning techniques used to maximize tax savings under this provision.

Description

IRC Section 199A, a complex tax law added by the 2017 tax reform law, provides certain taxpayers a deduction of net income attributable to certain qualified businesses. Over the course of 2018, the IRS issued proposed and, eventually, final regulations providing clarity to many issues under the tax provision. This deduction creates a tax benefit to sole proprietors and owners of pass-through entities carrying on qualified businesses by effectively reducing their federal income tax rate. Individuals, trusts and estates are eligible to claim the deduction based on their share of qualified business income, but only subject to the many strict requirements of IRC Section 199A.

The deduction equals up to 20% of a taxpayer's qualified business income from a certain trades or businesses, as well as 20% of qualified REIT dividends, publicly traded partnership income, and qualified cooperative dividends received by a taxpayer. The complexities of claiming the IRC Section 199A deduction require that tax advisers carefully evaluate their clients’ eligibility for the deduction, determine whether action should or can be taken to maximize the amount of the deduction, and implement planning strategies to secure the greatest possible benefit available to each 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.
