We’ll take a comprehensive, deep dive into the final regulations and the real estate “safe harbor” provided in Notice 2019-07.

Coverage will include qualification of real estate under triple net leases, specified service trades or businesses, aggregation of real estate rentals, maximizing §199A when selling a business, strategies for maximizing the UBIA (property factor) and W-2 wages. We’ll provide sample aggregation disclosures and Notice 2019-07 statements. We’ll also cover thorny issues:
• Is QBI reduced by charitable contributions a partnership or S corp makes?
• Do LLC members have to receive a “reasonable amount” of guaranteed payments for services?
• Does the rental of a single piece of property qualify for the §199A deduction?
• What does the recently released IRS publication tell us about §199A?
• How do passive loss carryovers affect QBI?
• Should your clients with rental properties be issuing Forms 1099 to service providers (like plumbers)?

Partial credit will not be awarded for attendees that are not present for the entirety of the webinar.

  • Changes in the definition of specified service trades or businesses

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize and apply the safe harbor for rental real estate (we'll provide a sample notice you can use in your practice)
