It’s common to consider making your S corporation a partner in your partnership: since it can save you self-employment taxes.
Does this affect your Section 199A deduction? It does.
Certain payments are not qualified business income (QBI) for the Section 199A deduction. The non-QBI payment rule applies whether the partner receives the payment as an individual or as pass-through income from an S corporation.
Keep the S corporation self-employment tax savings in mind when considering your partnership activity. It is possible that the self-employment tax savings can make the S-corporation-as-a-partner strategy well worth it. We have to look at your total tax and financial situation and align them with your goals to find out if this strategy will work for you.
You have an option if you want your Section 199A deduction (psssst it's an extra 20% deduction). We will be happy to explore that option with you. Take a look at our blog on Tax Strategies or book with us now.
