Final Regulations for Section 199A with Walter Nunnallee

353  |  TSCPA In Person Events  |  Basic  |  Scheduled


On January 18, 2019 the IRS released its "final" regulations (247 pages) under section 199A addressing virtually every aspect of the 20% deduction. Taxpayers may use the August 2018 “proposed” regulations in their entirety or these newly-released “final” regulations in their entirety for 2018 tax returns. Along with the “final” regulations, the IRS issued Notice 2019-7 providing guidance in determining which rental real estate activities may be treated as generating "qualified business income" for purposes of the 20% deduction.

Walter’s presentation will cover all major aspects of this long-awaited guidance. For example, Walter will be emphasizing the provisions that practitioners will need to know in order to determine: 

  • Whether Income from a Rental Real Estate Activity Qualifies for the 20% Deduction; 
  • The Key Differences Between the Final Regulations and the Proposed Regulations;
  • Which Business Income Is "Qualified Business Income" under Section 199A; 
  • Whether an "Aggregation Election" Is Available and Advisable (And How the Election Is Made); 
  • Whether a Business Activity Constitutes a "Specified Services Trade or Business" (SSTB) That May Not Qualify for the 20% Deduction; 
  • What Information Is Required to Be Reported by Pass-Through Entities and How it Will Be Reported; 
  • Whether an Anti-Abuse Provision Applies That Could Cause an Otherwise Qualifying Deduction to Be Reduced or Lost Altogether;  
  • Whether a Business Operation Represents a Single Trade or Business or Multiple Trades or Businesses.
  • And More!

Participants will receive a printed copy of materials.

This is the in person version of the course.
