The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: What it Means for the Pass-Through Business

January 18, 2018

On January 18, from 12:00 to 2:00 pm Central, we will review the Act’s changes to pass-through business income and impacts to business entity planning with Robert Jamison, author of S Corporation Taxation, published by CCH Incorporated. We will walk through the new IRC section 199A deduction, addressing its application to various taxpayers. We will discuss what is known, as well as specific areas where ambiguity must be addressed through regulation. We will address the latest on the deduction for qualified cooperative dividends. Participants will receive a PDF version of a detailed outline with citations to the new law. Some questions will be addressed during the session, with others answered in more detail with a follow-up Q & A document.
