S Corporation choice of entity
The ability to estimate the self-employment tax savings realized by changing entity types from a sole proprietorship to an S corporation that pays a reasonable wage to the owner is one of the most requested strategies by tax advisors.
When the taxable income on the return causes the qualified business income (QBI) deduction to be limited on IRS Form 8995-A, this strategy allows the user to modify the wage expenses and/or unadjusted basis in qualified property immediately after acquisition (UBIA) to optimize the available QBI deduction.
Cost segregation study
Cost segregation study reports by engineering and/or accounting specialists to identify and reclassify personal property assets that are part of real property can result in accelerated deductions, lower taxes, and improved cash flow.
Tax loss harvesting
Tax loss harvesting allows taxpayers to sell some long-term investments at a loss to offset capital gains and potentially lower taxes.
We have added more options to personalize the client reports, including the ability to change the taxpayer’s name and other information on the title page, hide certain pages of the report, and rearrange the order that pages appear.
To provide better visibility on how a strategy works, we improved the strategy card with four tabs of information about the strategy, including Overview, Research & Considerations, Formulas and Client materials. Under the 2022 strategy change value, we added a ‘Details’ link with more information about the annual limits. Under the strategy tax savings calculation, we added a ‘Formula’ link with details about how the savings were calculated for the specific strategy.
Activity screens may now be edited completely before recalculating, and we added the ability to zero out all the fields in an activity, or restore the prior year values. We also increased the number of available fields to edit, to provide more control.
