The familiar tradeoffs in choice of entity have been scrambled by the new tax law. Decisions made about choice of entity recently or in the past may no longer be sound, particularly for service-based businesses. The new deduction for pass-through income applies to certain types of businesses and income, but not others. This major change to tax law and many smaller changes require rethinking the tax considerations of choice of entity for service-based businesses where the new law has substantial but uncertain impact. In some instances, this rethinking may cause a business to convert from one type of entity to another. This program will provide you with real-world guide to choice of entity for service businesses with special emphasis on the new tax law.
