Section 199A: Applications and Challenges
Section 199A is easily the least understood topic of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Clients look to their tax professional for explanations and best practices to maximize the 20% deduction. Pass-through entities and real estate investors stand to gain valuable tax cuts, and the average practitioner cannot afford to be uninformed on Section 199A. This program incorporates the experiences many tax practitioners had over the last tax season calculating and applying this deduction. This course will cover all relevant facets and nuances of the deduction, as well as implementation issues and lessons that will be useful in advising clients this year. This program will include all relevant IRS guidance.
