The Section 199A Deduction in the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 offers a substantial break for qualified individuals and pass-through entities. However, the law itself is vague and ambiguous. The final regulations, revenue procedures and notices recently issued by the IRS provide definitive guidance. The mechanics of the deduction are not that difficult, but the deduction either phases out or may be limited is taxable income exceeds a threshold amount. For non-service businesses the deduction may be limited based on the W-2 wages paid from the business or a combination of W-2 wages and unadjusted basis of property used in the business. For service businesses the deduction can be lost when income reaches the end of the phase-out range.
