Webinar: The Nitti Gritti on 199A
“Artificial” Calculation of QBI Gets Real
Wednesday, August 22 | 1:00pm – 3:30pm
For months tax professionals have been eagerly awaiting guidance on the calculation of the new Section 199A deduction, a key component of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The new deduction allows for an “artificial” calculation of qualified business income and opens up the possibility of deductions as high as 20% for partnerships, LLCs, S-corporations and sole proprietors. Well, the wait is over. The guidance is here—and it’s more than we bargained for. In order to reap the benefits of this new deduction for clients, tax professionals will need to quickly master an extremely complex multi-step calculation process that may phase out some or all of the deduction. To do that, they must first digest a guidance package of epic proportions.
Don’t tackle this alone.
Join Withum Tax Partner and Forbes tax policy blogger Tony Nitti for a two hour webinar in which he’ll walk through the guidance and its application, and help you master the calculations, spot opportunities, and avoid pitfalls and traps. A frequent speaker on all aspects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Tony has been following the evolution of this critical and much anticipated guidance closely since it’s inception and is ready to help you master it in time to make sense of it for your clients this season.
After completing this course you’ll be better prepared to:
• Identify clients eligible to claim the deduction
• Determine a client’s qualified business income for purposes of the deduction
• Navigate the many limitations, exceptions to limitations, phase-ins, phase outs and grey areas in the guidance
