Dealership Insight Series: Tax Reform - Dealership Tax update

Course Description:
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act continues to have an ever-changing impact on taxpayers as both proposed and new regulations are being issued. Section 163(j) was amended by the TCJA but recently issued Proposed Regulations have raised a number of potential issues and planning opportunities for Dealerships. Additionally, the Section 199A deduction provides new potential tax savings opportunities while revisions to the rules regarding business losses and certain employee expenses may have a negative impact on the tax liability of Dealerships and their owners. Certain provisions of tax reform have complicated tax issues surrounding reinsurance. This webinar will provide an overview of the tax reform provisions impacting Dealerships, considerations and possible next steps.

  • Review the proposed regulations for section 163(j)
  • Discuss the final regulations for section 199A and other tax reform related guidance
