Understand your W-2 this tax season

55 percent of Minnesota CPAs say qualified business income deduction has most opportunity, questions this tax season
MINNEAPOLIS (Dec. 17, 2018) — This filing season will be the first in which taxpayers and preparers will see the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’s changes implemented on federal forms. Among those changes, one of the most complex that has the attention of more than half of certified public accountants is the Qualified Business Income (QBI) deduction.

Year-end tax planning -- more important than ever before
MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 26, 2018) — The 2019 tax season is bound to have surprises. Deductions disappeared among other massive changes with the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) in December 2017. Then, Minnesota couldn't reach an agreement on tax conformity, meaning our state is still operating under pre-tax reform tax code. This means new forms and many headaches are ahead for Minnesotans when they begin filing their tax forms.
