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 […]

Why a Firm Believer in Tax Cuts Could Derail the Senate Tax Cut Plan

Senate Republican leaders, who are seeking a major legislative victory before year’s end, hope to bring their tax bill, which differs significantly from the House measure, to a vote after Thanksgiving. But it is unclear whether it has enough support to pass in the narrowly divided chamber.Offering concessions to skeptical senators one by one could prove an impossible task for Republican leaders, who face restraints under Senate rules on the total size of the tax cut package. Those leaders are hoping, instead, that they can pull off a version of Mr. Ryan’s strategy: all but daring holdouts to derail the party’s top priority.Republicans, who control Congress and the White House, are desperately seeking their first significant legislative achievement of the Trump presidency. Mr. Johnson’s public wavering elicited calls from President Trump and a visit from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Gary D […]

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.

Trump Nominee for Federal Judgeship Has Never Tried a Case

Mr. Talley demurred. “It would be inappropriate for me as a nominee to comment on the advisability of any nomination,” he wrote.PhotoSenator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa with Republican colleagues last month.Credit J.

Lessons From Hurricane Harvey: Houston’s Struggle Is America’s Tale

‘Don’t California My Texas’Jim Blackburn, a planner, environmental lawyer and something of a lightning rod around here, has been warning for years about climate change, the decrepit state of Houston’s reservoirs and the perils of developing the Katy Prairie. He remembers escaping years ago to the prairie to bird watch. One recent morning he drove me out there along the Grand Parkway and pulled into an unfinished subdivision.A saleswoman in a model home boasted about $1 billion worth of box stores and malls being built nearby. The development, she said, adheres to county standards requiring that houses be raised above the 100-year floodplain. The woman handed Mr. Blackburn a glossy brochure and a disclaimer, which he scanned before climbing back into the car, shaking his head.Continue reading the main storyThe disclaimer explained that roads outside the development, linking it to the parkway, occupy the 10-year floodplain, meaning they would have about a 10 percent chance of flooding every year.“These days that means they’ll flood anytime you look at them funny,” Mr […]

Fact Check: Take Claims About State and Local Tax Deductions With a Grain of Salt

The deduction is claimed by taxpayers in every state, though larger percentages of taxpayers in the Northeast and the West benefit from it.About 46 percent of tax returns in Maryland — the state with the highest share in the country — used the provision and averaged almost $13,000 each in deductions in 2015, an analysis by the Government Finance Officers Association shows. On the other end, only 17 percent of tax returns in South Dakota took advantage of the provision, and averaged $6,000 each in deductions.Taxpayers in two states, California and New York, claimed more than 32 percent of the total deduction in 2013, the Tax Policy Center estimated.This alone does not mean that Indiana is bankrolling New York. Larger states, like New York and California, are getting bigger subsidies through the state and local tax deduction “because they’re paying substantially more in federal taxes,” said Kim Rueben, an author of the Tax Policy Center report.Multiple studies show that most states that are considered to be a “net donor” — those that pay more in taxes than they get back from Washington — also benefit the most from the state and local tax deduction.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Will Congress Ever Limit the Forever-Expanding 9/11 War?

Previous efforts collapsed under disagreements between lawmakers opposed to restricting the executive branch’s interpretation of its current wartime powers and those unwilling to vote for a new blank check for a forever war. Among the disputes: whether a replacement should have an expiration date, constrain the use of ground forces, limit the war’s geographic scope and permit the government to start attacking other militant groups merely associated with the major enemies it would name.Adding to the political headwinds, two of the Republican lawmakers most interested in drafting a new war authorization law are lame ducks and estranged from the White House: Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who is the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, who has proposed a new war authorization bill with Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat of Virginia. Both Republican senators, who have announced that they will not seek re-election, have publicly denounced Mr. Trump in recent weeks as dangerously unfit to be the commander in chief.PhotoSenator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, is interested in drafting a new war authorization law.Credit Al Drago for The New York TimesBut as the 9/11 war enters its 17th year, questions about the scope and limits of presidential war-making powers are taking on new urgency.Mr. Trump is giving the Pentagon and the C.I.A […]
