Wolters Kluwer : MEDIA ALERT — Time for taxpayers to prepare for the next tax season

10/21/2021 | 10:02am EST

Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting looks at year-end steps to consider that might impact your 2021 tax return

Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting:

What: Most of the steps available to taxpayers that affect their 2021 tax return must be completed before the end of the year. Areas of focus often include accelerating deductions, postponing income, reviewing investment portfolios for possible capital gain or loss realizations, making charitable gifts, and lifetime gifts to family members.

However, 2021 year-end planning might look a little different. The US Congress is still considering a large package of tax changes that could increase taxes in 2022 for wealthier taxpayers while potentially reducing taxes for low to middle-income taxpayers. Referred to as the Build Back Better Act, the details are still subject to substantial change as legislators work to reduce the cost from around $3.5 trillion to around $2 trillion. It is possible an agreement might not be reached until very late in the year.

Why: If and when the Build Back Better bill is enacted, it could be too late to do year-end planning in response. Some of the provisions may be effective as of the enactment date, others such as capital gains rate changes could potentially be retroactive and already too late for planning, and some might be effective starting in 2022 or later. Taxpayers would likely benefit from speaking to their tax & accounting professional about any year-end changes that might make sense for them. Some steps that taxpayers might want to consider include:

  • All taxpayers may want to look at year-end charitable contributions to take advantage of the $300 deduction for those claiming the standard deduction or the 100 percent of Adjusted Gross Income limit on those itemizing deductions; both provisions currently expire at the end of this year
  • Taxpayers may want to look at what might be their last chance to do Roth IRA conversions, although US Congress could possibly change the Administration’s original proposals and keep Roth conversions around for a longer period to increase projected revenue from them
  • With possible estate and gift tax changes, including lowering of the exemption amount and elimination of the benefits of grantor trusts and valuation discounts, year-end would be a good time for taxpayers to review their estate plans and possibly consider year-end lifetime gifts
  • With a possible significant increase in IRS funding to enhance audit rates of tax returns, taxpayers may want to focus on making sure they have documentation to support all deductions and credits on their tax returns
  • While capital gains rates may increase for wealthier taxpayers, the current proposed effective date is September 13, 2021, making it potentially already too late to plan in advance of the new rules
  • Owners of pass-through businesses should consider reviewing possible changes to the 20 percent deduction for qualified business income, disallowance of excess business losses, changes to the taxation of carried interests, and a significant package of changes to the taxation of partnerships
  • Wealthier taxpayers may want to consider accelerating income rather than the usual postponement of income
  • Wealthier taxpayers may also want to consider postponing deductions rather than the usual acceleration of deductions
