IRS Throws Down the Gauntlet with Sec. 199A Regs—New Challenges for S Corps., Partnerships, and LLCs

At long last, the (300 page) Final §199A Regs have dropped. What does it mean for 2018 tax returns? Everything. IRS (and Treasury) have thrown down a critical choice at our feet: Choose to apply (to 2018 returns) 08/16/18 proposed regs or 01/18/19 final regs. Which to choose? This thre-hour CPE webinar with experienced practitioner and instructor Bradley Burnett will explain why you should look carefully at the August proposed regs and consider if they provide a one-year advantage to you in filing 2018 returns for clients who are S corps., partnerships, or LLCs. The possibilities are there for enhanced tax savings depending on your client or business’s specific circumstances.
