    Wisconsin’s Rejection of 199A Deduction and other Modifications to the Federal Tax Cuts & Jobs Act

    by: Benjamin D. LaFrombois, von Briesen & Roper, s.c.

    The Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the “Act”) reduced corporate tax rates (C corporation) and allowed for a deduction of certain income from pass-through entities.  These changes create opportunities for business owners to reduce taxes with good planning.  Every business owner should reassess whether to be taxed as a C corporation, a pass-through entity (S corporation or partnership) or combination thereof.

    For the Wisconsin business owner, the re-assessment takes heightened importance because Wisconsin rejected one of the major benefits of the Act – the Section 199A deduction of certain pass-through income. By losing the Section 199A deduction for Wisconsin income tax purposes, the Wisconsin taxpayer may find that a C corporation has significant tax benefits.
