The new 20% deduction for pass-through entities -- businesses other than C corporations -- alters financial planning, tax and investment decisions for a key group of financial advisor clients.

At this class, Robert Keebler, CPA/PFS, one of the nation's top educators of lawyers and accountants explains the practical implications of the new rules associated with IRC Section 199A, including the impact of the new deduction on owners of small businesses, professional practices, and real estate investments.

You'll learn about the statutory framework of the new section of the federal tax code and planning techniques to maximize the deduction, including:

the tax law behind the 20% small business deduction
the math of the small business deduction and the troublesome limitations
what a specified service trade or business is
the four types of taxpayers
the limitation based on W-2 wages and capital
treatment of carryover losses
treatment of real estate income
the impact of reasonable compensation and guaranteed payments
the impact on qualified REIT income
the relationship to the net investment income tax
the relationship to self-employment taxes
changes in the accuracy-related penalty

Keebler Is Stellar

I will never be able to figure out how Bob Keebler is able to pack so much information into an hour-long presentation while still managing to make the complex topics easier to understand.

If you are an advisor to small/medium size businesses, you need to watch this webinar and subsequent updates.

5 Stars.
