One Year In:

The Qualified Business Income Deduction


its Impact on the Retirement Plan Industry

The Presentation:

“With change comes opportunity!  The Section 199A Qualified Business Income deduction provided for in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) created unique planning opportunities and challenges for plan sponsors with pass-through income.  This session will provide an overview of the deduction and its effects on various entity types, and will include a review of guidance issued since the passage of TCJA.”

The webcast will discuss

  1. Who is eligible for the new QBI deduction
  2. How the phase-outs work for specified services and non-specified services
  3. How the QBI deduction and phase-outs work for various entity types
  4. What is a specified service
  5. Which taxpayers can supercharge their retirement plan deduction by avoiding the phase-out and “reclaiming” their QBI deduction
  6. Which taxpayers should refocus their retirement dollars to ROTH arrangements due to the QBI deduction
