The New Qualified Business Income Deduction (QBID)
Probably the most significant part of the TCJA is a brand-new deduction for small business. Most business owners will get to reduce taxable income by 20% of the net business income from sole proprietorships, partnerships, and S corporations. This is huge, and your clients will want to know as much as possible as soon as possible. But, as to be expected, it is not simple. There are several limitations and requirements to take advantage of this new opportunity. All of these will be explained at this two-hour webinar with lots of examples to make it perfectly understandable. For all businesses it will be necessary to reconsider choice of entity in light of the new tax law. Many tax planning opportunities will be examined to enable you to provide the greatest assistance to your clients.

Schedule A: A Much Different Animal and Possibly an Endangered Species After 2017
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has taken a hatchet to Schedule A as we have known it for years. Several items have been limited or repealed. That combined with the significant increase in the standard deduction will result in fewer taxpayers itemizing deductions. But that makes it even more important to plan on maximizing deductions for those clients who will still itemize. In this two-hour webinar we will talk about the new limitations for mortgage interest, taxes, charitable contributions, employee business expenses etc. But we will also talk about ways to benefit by timing deductions on Schedule A or by rearranging transactions, so the benefit is obtained elsewhere on the tax return.

Choice of Business Entity: Time to Hit the Reset Button
Because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it really is necessary to reconsider choice of entity for every one of our business clients. The new Section 199A Qualified Business Income Deduction (QBID) makes sole proprietorships, LLCs and partnerships more attractive and could make some S corporations not so attractive. At the same time a 40% drop in the tax rates for C corporations will result in more of those in the future. Even personal service businesses may well choose to be C corporations. You will be busy meeting with all your clients and running the numbers to allow them to make the best choice. At this 2-hour webinar we will make sure you are equipped with all the knowledge required to provide this service.

TCJA and Accounting for Income Taxes
With tax reform and massive changes to corporate taxes, accountants still have to follow ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes, to reflect the potential impact on deferred taxes in the financial statements. The SEC has given publicly traded entities a temporary reprieve on the exact calculations, and the FASB has followed suit for private companies. Paul Munter reviews the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on the financial statements of corporate entities including the impact of repatriation of earnings, the BEAT and GILTI taxes.
