Taxes - Taxes for Course Id 1436

Description :

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (P.L. 115-97), enacted Dec. 22, 2017, created, under §199A, a new deduction for up to 20% of qualified business income (QBI) from partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), S corporations, trusts, estates, and sole proprietorships for tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2017. However, determining the §199A deduction amount and availability is a very complex multi-step process that may phase out some or all of the deduction. 
In the face of this complexity, the text provides a selected overview of the basic components of this below-the-line deduction. Qualified business income, taxpayer's taxable income, wage/capital limit, specified services trade or businesses, and other key components are not only defined and calculated but their interaction is demonstrated and exampled.
