Qualified Business Income Deduction Software
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed on December 22, 2017 contains provision for a new qualified business income (QBI) deduction known as Section 199A deduction. This provision was included as a deduction for taxpayers that own an interest in a pass-through entity such as a sole proprietorship, partnership, S corporation or limited liability company.
Calculating the qualified business income deduction can be confusing and complicated. There are special rules for certain types of trades or businesses and in some cases the income from the trade or business is subject to a phase out percentage and / or adjustment.
S199A Pro is an effective tool for verifying and understanding calculations made by tax preparation software or for year-end tax planning purposes. You can also change the parameters to perform what-if analysis to maximize deductions.
The information that you can gain from S199A Pro can be invaluable to clients. The program allows you to create what if analysis based on W-2 wages and fixed asset purchases so the taxpayer can see at a glance the effects those changes have on their bottom line tax savings. Similar comparisons can also be made on the aggregation of businesses and the potential effects on the Section 199A deduction and tax savings.
