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.
CPAs must know how Section 199A works before helping their clients maximize the amazing advantages this provision offers. Fortunately, on August 8, 2018, the IRS released much needed guidance and the specifics of the terms and calculations in a 200-page document, which is a great help for practitioners and taxpayers alike.
