The new Section 163(j) limitations on business interest deductibility likely will create serious tax consequences for many U.S. businesses. Unlike the prior version of Section 163(j), which generally applied only to corporations that owed money to foreign related parties, the new Section 163(j) can apply to all taxpayers, such as individuals and partnerships, and to all interest expense paid to both related and unrelated parties. Interest is defined very broadly for this purpose and includes guaranteed payments for the use of capital. 

Join this session by expert speaker Nicholas Preusch, where he will discuss the interest expenses subject to limitation and its various exceptions, such as for investment interest, a small business (loosely defined), and a real property trade or business.
