Long after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 became law, Section 199A is still widely misunderstood. This course will cover all relevant facets and nuances of the 20% deduction, the latest relevant IRS guidance, as well as implementation issues and lessons that will be useful in advising clients on how to maximize benefits related to this provision. In addition, the Act created new reporting requirements for relevant pass-through entities (RPEs). Each RPE is required to report relevant data required to calculate the §199A deduction to each recipient of a Schedule K-1. Your clients will trust you to ensure that the relevant data is properly reported. This course will cover the new reporting requirements on those forms, as well as examples and case studies on completing the new disclosure lines of Schedules K-1.
