• House and Senate Republicans have worked out a final tax plan, which includes a 20% deduction for pass-through businesses.• Business Insider's Pedro Nicolaci da Costa wrote this will "disproportionately benefit the wealthy" by allowing rich business owners to avoid higher individual tax rates.
Pass-through businesses - including LLCs and S-corporations - don't pay corporate taxes. Instead, income "passes through" to the owner, who then pays taxes on the earnings.
The finalized Republican tax plan throws a 20% tax deduction the way of pass-through businesses.
The House initially proposed a 25% deduction, while the Senate's initial plan called for a 23% deduction.The measure has been criticized as a huge boost to the 1%. According to Small Business Labs, this provision stands to benefit only the wealthiest of pass-through business owners, and will not likely apply to highly-paid professionals who run "service firms," including doctors and lawyers.Business Insider's Elena Holodny reported the wealthiest American households "stand to benefit handsomely from the plan," with a $10 million household income receiving an annual tax cut of over $200,000.
Here's a look at some occupations that are likely to benefit most from the plan:
- Farmer unions now announce plan to march towards Parliament on Budget day
- Pradhan Mantri Bal Puraskar to be awarded to 32 children on Republic Day
- Birla is making Asian Paints and Berger Paints change colours— and it’s bad news for those who got shares in Indigo IPO too
