New Deduction for Qualified Businesses

For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017, taxpayers other than corporations may be entitled to a deduction of up to 20 percent of their qualified business income from a qualified trade or business under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  This deduction can be taken in addition to the standard or itemized deductions. The deduction is subject to multiple limitations based on the type of trade or business, the taxpayer’s taxable income, the amount of W-2 wages paid with respect to the qualified trade or business, and the unadjusted basis of qualified property held by the trade or business.  Notwithstanding these limitations, however, taxpayers with qualified business income (which does not include income from performing services as an employee) and with taxable income under $157,500, or $315,000 for joint returns, will generally be eligible for the deduction.  The IRS will provide additional information and guidance on this deduction later this summer.
