Thursday, July 15. The new elective state pass-through entity taxes: A survey of the latest developments, 1:00 p.m. ET.  The 2017 federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act imposed a $10,000 annual limitation on the amount of state and local taxes (SALT) individuals can deduct in computing federal income taxes (the “cap”). As a workaround to the cap, some states, starting with Connecticut in 2018, enacted new taxes on PTEs that shifted the direct burden of PTE taxation from the owners to the entities and provided a credit against or an exclusion of the distributive share of PTE income subject to such tax from the related direct state income taxes on the owners. In response to a perceived ambiguity as to whether the IRS would respect the SALT cap workarounds, in November 2020 the US Treasury Department issued Notice 2020-75. Following the release of Notice 2020-75, many states have enacted, or are considering enacting, similar entity-level PTE taxes. Please join EY professionals to discuss the issues around new elective state pass-through entity taxes. Register.
