You may be thinking of extracting the full benefits of Section 199A for your clients, but lack of clarity and complexity in this section may prevent you in working to their best interests. While the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) brought significant changes to 199A, many questions have been left unanswered leading to confusion and ambiguity. Section 199A deductions are also known as Qualified Business Income deduction or pass-through deductions.

Many feel that Section 199A deduction calculations are elusive in scope because of the issues with specified service, trade or business, as well as the various combinations of revenue sources. Section 199A 20% deduction for pass-through entities and real estate investors is by far the most complex provision of the TCJA and optimizing it is no child’s play.  

This course with expert speaker Craig W. Smalley, will help practitioners gain the knowledge to help their clients maximize Section 199A deduction using new IRS guidance and guidelines. You’ll learn how pass-through entities can maximize the 20% deduction and learn about the latest updates to the tax code. This session will also provide you with better understanding on topics such as W2 wages, income thresholds, investment limits and eligibility. 

Session Highlights:

  • Major updates to the tax code

  • Insights on income thresholds and eligibility

  • W2 wages and investment limits

  • What is a Qualified Business Income (QBI)
