IRS Hosting QBI Webinar Tomorrow

Tax professionals interested in learning more about the Section 199A qualified business income (QBI) deduction can attend a webinar hosted by the IRS tomorrow afternoon.

On Thursday, May 30 at 2:00 p.m. EST, the agency will highlight a number of topics related to QBI—a passthrough entity deduction that has caused some confusion since it was introduced in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

The webinar has a 100-minute run time, and there is no fee for signing up. Even more encouraging, attendees of the can earn two hours of continuing professional education (CPE) credit upon completion.

According to the IRS, the following information will be addressed:

  • Definition of terms
  • Calculating the deduction
  • Application of limitations
  • Discussion of the rental real estate safe harbor
  • Walk through examples to bring it all together
  • Plus a live Q & A

Whether designing superheroes, penciling caricatures, or just doodling, I always knew I was going to earn some sort of art degree while in college. That was my goal before I decided to trade Edgar Degas for Edgar Allan Poe during a Freshman English class. The BA in English soon morphed into a double-major in English and Philosophy, eventually becoming an MA in English. It only makes sense that I learned of a writing opportunity for a local marketing firm while teaching a first-year college English course. Before I knew it, I was writing and editing tax-related articles for Taxing Subjects, and this has been my home since 2014.
