Bookkeeping Tip: Retroactive Tax Changes in 2021

Bookkeeping tip! In a new draft bill released by the Ways and Means Committee, we have started to get more insight into the new tax code (2021/2022).

Within the new 830 page bill, specific highlights regarding your business and personal income may be affected. Here are a few changes to expect:

  • The top tax bracket increased to 39.6%.
  • Capital gains rate increase to 25%.
  • Additional NIIT tax for anyone making more than 400k income.
  • Contribution limitations on I.R.A.s for high-income individuals.
  • Retroactive Restrictions for individuals involved in conservation easements.
  • Allows S Corps to convert to Partnerships without triggering tax on the reorganization.
  • Enhancement of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit to more individuals

26.5% C Corp rate (5M+ income businesses).

Remember, this is just a draft coming out of the House of Representatives. Still, some of it mirrors what was discussed in President Biden’s American Jobs and American Families Plan back in March/April this year.

If you are a business owner expecting to pay taxes this year and next, this will most likely affect you once the bill becomes law.
