Though it is undeniable fact that under IRC 199A taxpayers have received one of the best new tax deductions from Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – i.e. new 20% qualified business income deduction. Indeed the issues in the case of Qualified Business Income Deduction is not only about learning and understanding the code, but also about making sure the tax calculations are done with accuracy.

Money management is an essential aspect of investing. Just like it is essential to know when to get invested, so is true for the exit. Without devising an exit strategy a shareholder may have to adjust premature profits or – in some cases – losses. Especially, in the case of an S-Corporation, this is true. Therefore, it is essential for all the shareholders to devise an exit strategy that helps them in minimizing losses and yield better profits.
