The Section 199A statute, regulations, and guidance leave many common questions unanswered. Therefore, many practitioners must evaluate what position to take and whether there is sufficient authority. Part of this analysis is determining what, if any, penalties might apply should the IRS prevail on audit. Some of the more difficult issues are:
-   Framing out the critical Section 199A issues with penalty exposure
-   Reviewing the trade or business issue and the multi-entity issue
-   Addressing aggregation elections and penalties and Notice 2019-7 Elections
-   Understanding the separate and separable issue
-   Understanding the statutory employee issue
-   Understanding the multiple trust rules and the impact of these provisions
-   Understanding the various penalties under the Internal Revenue Code
-   Understanding the levels of assurance for penalty waivers
-   Understanding how and when to use opinion letters to reduce a client’s exposure
-   Finally, how and when to use form 8275 disclosures
Practitioners also need to be acutely aware of the impact on the Sec. 6662(b)(2) substantial-understatement penalty. For taxpayers that take a Sec. 199A deduction, a special rule decreases the threshold that triggers the penalty from an understatement that is 10% of the tax required to be shown on the original return or $5,000, to an understatement that is 5% of the tax required to be shown on the original return or $5,000 (Sec. 6662(d)(1)(C)).
With a basic understanding of how to disclose positions and demonstrate sufficient authority for the position, the accuracy-related penalty can be avoided. This highly practical and actionable webinar will teach you how to penalty-proof your clients' 199A positions.
