BUSINESS ANALYSIS

and by cutting the top rate on the active
business income of pass-through entities to 25 percent, the Blueprint makes
section 199 unnecessary."
This is an extremely popular section
of the Internal Revenue Code and is
used by a lot of our clients. Not only
does it apply to traditional manufacturers it applies to many broadly defined
firms that would otherwise not be considered manufacturers. Items such as
growers, software firms, and construction and even automotive rebuilders
can be considered manufacturers.
Another identifiable issue is the Earned
Income Tax credit. The Blueprint states:
"The IRS makes billions of dollars in improper payments through
the programs it administers, particularly the Earned Income Tax Credit
(EITC). At 24 percent, the EITC has
the highest level of improper payments
of any Federal program, with nearly
$15.6 billion in improper payments in
fiscal year 2015, nearly double the rate
of the next highest program."

Conclusion
This Executive Order and the House
Ways and Means Committee's Blueprint
means that tax reform will come. This
reform will have an impact on transferring businesses across the United
States. Many Companies and business
owners across the country are on the
edge of selling their business and/or
retiring and transferring it to the next
generation. It is very possible that we
will have more favorable tax rates in
the near future. With the two primary
catalysts of tax reform lining up their
proposals in similar methods, and with
the White House requesting for simplification of overly burdensome taxes
and regulations, there has never been
a better time to position your company
or your business for its succession to
the next generation or for the sale of it
on the open market.
