The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”) reduced the US corporate tax rate to an all-time low 21%. At the same time Congress began, ever so slowly, moving toward eliminating the historical difference between debt and equity for US federal income tax purposes. This session will talk about corporate tax planning, post-Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and will review 2018 IRS guidance under the new provisions including the new Code section 163(j) limit on the deduction of business interest (and proposed regulations, if available), changes in the NOL carryover rules, immediate expensing of equipment costs under new Code section 168(k), the reduction in the corporate income tax rate and other domestic corporate tax provisions.
