Wealth Matters: Tax Cuts for Small-Business Owners? It’s Complicated

In other words, the House bill may seem like a tax cut for small businesses, but it is not likely to bring much relief to many of those owners, and it is certainly not comparable to what was proposed for large corporations. And some professions, like consultants, lawyers, doctors and other professional services companies, are not even eligible for the lower pass-through rate.“What’s really going to happen is, people are going to change their behavior based on this tax act,” Mr. Reitmeyer said, like rethinking their business tax structure.The House bill says that up to 30 percent of business income can be taxed at the lower 25 percent rate, with the rest at the personal income tax rate. At the highest level, this is a blended tax rate of 35.22 percent, at least for businesses that qualify. That is a far cry from the 20 percent proposed for corporations.The Senate proposal, which is wending its way through the committee process, offers the possibility of a deduction of business income of up to 17.4 percent. But it still has hurdles: This week, it lost one Republican vote, when Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin opposed the different treatment for corporations and pass-through entities.What becomes of the two bills when they get reconciled is going to determine whether small-business owners will pay less in taxes. But it will also determine what resources they will have to invest in their businesses and still maintain their lifestyles.The savviest business owners will begin by calling a sophisticated accountant or tax lawyer […]

Accounting ‘Gimmicks’ in G.O.P.’s Tax Overhaul Mask Higher Cost, Deficit Hawks Say

Such sleights of hand in accounting are more prevalent in the Senate plan, which makes many of its cuts temporary or delays their enforcement. For instance, the Senate bill delays the corporate tax cut, which will fall to 20 percent from 35 percent, by one year for savings of about $100 billion. It also saves about $240 billion by making the individual income tax cuts “temporary” and setting them to expire in 2025.Other tax breaks are phased in slowly or phased out. Businesses are allowed to fully expense only their capital investments, including equipment purchases, through 2022. And, beginning in 2024, the ability to carry net operating losses forward would be limited as a percent of taxable income. In 2026, research and experimental expenditures would have to be written off gradually, or amortized, rather than immediately deducted, which reduces the revenue hit to the federal budget.According the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the real cost of the Senate legislation that the Joint Committee on Taxation says will cost $1.41 trillion over a decade would be $2.2 trillion if all the temporary changes were made permanent. The group estimates that the nation’s debt, which has surpassed $20 trillion, would exceed the size of the economy by 2028 under the plan — a level the United States has not reached since World War II.Republican leaders in Congress and the Trump administration have acknowledged the budget maneuvers, saying they expect the temporary tax cuts to stay in place.“As a result of the reconciliation process and scoring and the Byrd Rule, there are certain parts of this that expire,” the Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, said on CNBC on Friday. “But we have every expectation that down the road that Congress will extend them.” The Byrd rule refers to restrictions put in place by former Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia that prevent legislation that adds to the deficit in the long-term.To deficit hawks, underselling the true cost of tax cuts is counterproductive and potentially dangerous for the economy.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.
