Course Description

As part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), the federal deduction for state and local taxes was limited to $10,000 for a married couple filed jointly. States, particularly those with high taxes, almost immediately started working on mechanisms to help their high-income residents and small business owners avoid this limitation. In November 2020, IRS Notice 2020-75 was published allowing Pass-Through Entities (PTE) to deduct certain state income taxes directly imposed on the PTE, even when such taxes are imposed based upon an election and the PTE’s owners are entitled to a state tax credit. Following this IRS Notice, many states have jumped on board by enacting elective PTE taxes that allow owners of these businesses to avoid the $10,000 federal deduction limitation. These state laws will have a significant effect on federal income tax revenue and set the stage for a showdown in Congress concerning the possible repeal of the SALT deduction limitation.

This online CPE/ CE course will take you through some of the similarities and differences of these taxes and some of the questions arising as these new taxes are implemented. We will also look at recent IRS guidance on the federal deduction for the PTE taxes to examine the potential federal tax benefits of these SALT deduction workarounds.

Major topics covered in this online CPE/CE webinar:

  • Pass-through entities
  • State taxable income
  • Other entity-level taxes
  • New PTE level taxes to circumvent the SALT CAP
  • Recent developments
