Connecticut’s Response to the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017

In response to the state income tax deduction limitation imposed by the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, Connecticut enacted a new 6.99% income tax on passthrough entities (such as S corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies). Public Act 18-49, which was signed by Governor Malloy in May, significantly changes how Connecticut will tax income earned by passthrough entities and their owners.

In addition to the new passthrough entity tax, Connecticut decoupled from fixed asset expensing and adopted other tax changes in response to the new federal tax legislation

Hear from Tony Switajewski, CPA, BlumShapiro, and Louis Schatz, Attorney, Shipman & Goodwin, who will provide an overview of Connecticut’s response to the TCJA of 2017.

Topics will include:

Connecticut's New Passthrough Entity Tax
* Elective methods to calculate the taxable income base
* How owners can obtain a Connecticut tax credit for the taxes paid by the entity
* Estimated tax payment requirements and owner tax payment "recharacterization"
* Tax planning ideas
* Financial statement impact to the business entity

Fixed Asset Expensing (Bonus Depreciation and Section 179 Expensing)

Miscellaneous Tax Provisions
* 20% Qualified Business Income Deduction
* 30% Business Interest Expense Limitation
* Grants to Businesses
* Municipal Charitable Contribution
