Simplifying the Tax Code Causes More Complexities!

taxes

While the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) sought to simplify the tax code, it also brought new complexity. For example, a new deduction provides substantial tax savings to people with “qualified business income” (QBI) from their pass-through business but calculating the deduction and limitations is complicated.

Generally, the QBI deduction is 20% of qualified income from a partnership, S corporation, or sole proprietorship. QBI, in a nutshell, is the net amount of income, gain, deduction, and loss with respect to your trade or business. Although we have a framework for the QBI calculation, we still await IRS guidance and clarification. This deduction will benefit many business owners, while phase-in and phase-out rules will reduce or eliminate the deduction for some taxpayers.

Complexities surrounding the new law can be daunting. Give us a call, and we can help you determine the impact that this deduction or other parts of the TCJA may have on your tax situation
