QBI for LLC ...does it include k-1 plus w-2 wages for 20% calculation. If a member receives a paycheck W-2 and K-1 passthrough they should be considered same income?

got an answer of no...no what...why would a member pay a salary as standard procedure for years and then stop w-2 to increase pass through income.  Initial procedures stated it was both...proc on 1/22/19 says a different thing

Because they are required to take out a reasonable salary.  No is the correct answer.

It was never both:

Why is an LLC member getting a W-2?

LLC elected to be taxed as Corporation?     When someone just says LLC...there too many options to know exactly what type of entity they are referring to.
