The upcoming tax year brings in a lot of changes for self-employed and business taxpayers.
Taxpayers with sole proprietorship, partnerships, trusts, and S corporations will face some difficulties when they’re ready to file for the 2019 tax season because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).
Read below for the changes you need to know for your business taxes.
Here’s what qualifies as business income.
In order to have qualified business income (QBI), it must be domestic income from a trade or business. Your qualified business income (QBI) is calculated into a net amount and does not include employee wages, capital gain, interest and dividend income.
The maximum deduction increases.
Prior to the TCJA, you could deduct up to $500,000 for any section 179 property. It has now increased to $1 million. The phase-out threshold also increases from $2 million to $2.5 million. (Subject to change due to inflation.)
