AAFCPAs’ Richard Weiner and Daniel Cahill to Co-Present Tax Act Briefing: Choice of Entity After the TCJA

Richard Weiner & Dan CahillAAFCPAs’ Tax Partner Richard Weiner, CPA, MST, Tax Manager Daniel Cahill, CPA, and Joseph B. Darby III, a Partner in Sullivan & Worcester’s Boston office, will present an educational briefing on September 26th from 4:00pm-5:45pm on the topic of Choice of Entity After the 2017 Tax Act: The Popular Passion for Pass-Through Entities May Be Kaput.
The Tax Act introduced major changes to the U.S. federal income taxation of business entities. The C corporation tax rate dropped from a painfully high 35% rate to a more congenial 21% rate, thus ending, for now, the stampede of U.S. companies to offshore jurisdictions. Meanwhile, the “qualified business income deduction” (QBI deduction) provides a major reduction in the tax rate imposed on U.S. domestic pass-through entities – which is to say, the tax rate for almost every privately owned U.S.-based business.
With all these changes, the operative question is: “Which entity is now better?” The short answer is: “It depends.” The longer answer is: “The analysis is interesting, complicated, often times counter-intuitive, and in almost all cases the analytical process no longer produces a simple answer.”
Come join our knowledgeable and experienced panel of experts as we discuss the pros and cons of C corporations, S corporations, LLCs, and other business entities and discuss how to pick the “right” business entity to fully exploit all the generous benefits of the new tax regime, particularly the complicated but potentially lucrative QBI deduction.
Date: September 26th, 2018
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:45 PM
Location: Sullivan & Worcester Conference Center, Boston, MA
