After 31 years… Major Tax Reform — and what it means to you True overhaul of the tax law only happens about once every 30 years.
I have been fortunate as a tax professional to be heavily involved in the last two reforms.
My primary responsibility during my three years there was to create, teach and administer tax courses to the Firm’s U.
This gave me, as a young tax professional, some amazing insight into the legislative process as well as the horse trading for tax reform.
It took another year before bill was finally passed as the Tax Reform Act of 1986.
) In 1986 the big winners from tax reform were individuals, with significantly lower tax rates, insurance companies (who got by relatively unscathed) and businesses.
The result a few years later was the Savings and Loan debacle accompanied by a massive real estate depression and the government bailing out real estate through the RTC (Resolution Trust Corporation).
President Trump had promised economic stimulus and had stumbled out of the blocks with the failure to repeal ObamaCare.
Instead, the Republican-controlled Congress was able to use slick procedural rules to pass major tax reform in record time (less than three months from start to finish).
Everyone has the same chance to take advantage of the windfalls given to the winners.
Service professionals who were left out of the 20% deduction can now become C corporations and reduce their tax rate to 21%.
Tax-Free Wealth is about using the tax law the way it’s meant to be used – as a series of incentives to do what the government wants you to do.
The reality is that the incentives don’t really change that much.
The government still wants investors to provide housing for renters (even more so now), so real estate investors receive large tax breaks for following through on the government’s goals.
tax law has only seen three major revisions; one in 1954, the next in 1986 and most recently at the end of 2017.
In 1986, I was a manager in the National Tax Department (NTD) of Ernst & Whinney (now Ernst Young).
Just as I arrived in the summer of 1985, I discovered that much of NTD’s resources were being devoted to following the tax reform bill that had been introduced that year.
President Reagan wanted two things; simplicity (the 1985 act was call the Tax Simplification Act of 1985) and he wanted it to be revenue neutral (no net increase to the deficit).
(Simplicity took a back seat to other goals of the reform.
The big loser was real estate investors (the passive loss rules were used as a last-ditch effort to make a “revenue-neutral” bill.
Everyone thought tax reform would take two years to complete like it had in 1985-1986.
The result was a bill the consequences of which and application of which are still largely unknown.
Losers include employees with lost deductions for moving, investment expenses and reductions in home mortgage interest and state income tax deductions.
The key to remember is that very few people had the chance to influence this legislation.
Employees can choose to be independent contractors and receive the 20% small business deduction.
This Second Edition incorporates some ideas of how to use the new incentives.
The government still wants businesses to hire employees, so businesses receive tax benefits for doing so.
Winners include big corporations, with a major tax reduction from 35% to big corporations, with a major tax reduction from 35% to 21%, small businesses, with a 20% net income deduction, and real estate, with major depreciation incentives and the 20% net income deduction given to other small businesses.
Investors who received tax benefits from the costs of investing in the stock market can either begin investing in real estate, with its massive tax benefits, or invest through their Roth IRA or Roth 401(k) and avoid tax altogether on the income and gains from their investments.
