The 20 Percent Pass-Through Deduction: Proposed Guidance and Its Impact on Trucking

Posted 1:00 PM by
When the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) became law on Dec. 22, 2017 there was interpretation of the law, but little guidance on how taxpayers would implement the qualified business income (QBI) 20 percent pass-through deduction. After more than eight months, the IRS has finally issued proposed regulations. Initial commentary that Section 199A would be taxpayer favorable has been confirmed by the recently issued proposed regulations.

IRS Issues Proposed Regulations on Charitable Contributions and State and Local Tax Credits

Posted 5:58 PM by
Prior to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), signed into law in December 2017, taxpayers were allowed an itemized deduction for state and local taxes paid without any limit on the amount of such deduction. The TCJA limited the state and local tax deduction, for individuals, to a maximum of $10,000. As a result, some states contemplated the creation of new state charitable funds, the donations to which would qualify for a state tax credit. Since charitable contributions are only limited by a taxpayer’s adjusted gross income, taxpayers that contributed to the state charitable funds, in lieu of paying state income tax, would generally receive a greater federal itemized tax deduction.

IRS Issues Guidance on 20 Percent Pass-Through Deduction

Posted 6:55 PM by
It took a little over eight months, but the IRS has issued much-anticipated proposed regulations regarding the 20 percent pass-through deduction provided under Section 199A. The 184 pages of proposed regulations provide answers to some, but not all, of the questions considered since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) was signed into law on Dec. 22, 2017. Since TCJA was enacted, tax advisors have counseled clients to 'stand your ground' and refrain from any radical structure modifications in response to the new provision. Those that heeded this advice will likely be thankful they did.

Supreme Court Rules States Can Collect Online Sales Tax

Posted 6:01 PM by
In a 5-4 decision today, the Supreme Court turned the sales tax world on its head by overturning South Dakota v. Wayfair. The decision reverses decades of history related to sales tax nexus and a retailer’s obligation to collect and remit tax when it sold its products across state lines. Disavowing the old physical presence standard established by Quill, the high court’s ruling now opens the door for states to impose an economic nexus standard when it comes to sales tax collection responsibilities.

2018 Indiana Legislative Update: Take 2

Posted 1:00 PM by
As the clock struck midnight Wednesday, March 14, chaos ensued at the Indiana Statehouse. Having not addressed several important topics – such as school safety, school finance, and tax reform – during the 2018 Indiana legislative session, Gov. Holcomb called the Indiana General Assembly back for a one-day special legislative session. This special session ended May 14 with the passage of only five bills. These bills included several tax implications for Indiana taxpayers, the most important of which are the tax provisions relevant to the recent federal tax overhaul under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

2018 Indiana Legislative Update

Posted 5:56 PM by
(Legislative) season’s greetings as we present our annual Indiana legislative update. As 2018 was a “short” session, the number of bills that ultimately passed was far fewer than those likely to be signed into law during the 2019 budget year. That said, there was still plenty of activity worthy of attention.
