The TCJA imposes a $10,000 limitation for deducting state and local taxes. California has finally joined a growing list of states that have implemented a workaround using passthrough entities in order to minimize the impact of the limitation. For taxable years 2021 through 2025 AB 150 allows qualified passthrough entities to pay and deduct a passthrough entity tax. Taking advantage of this workaround can help your clients reduce their federal tax liabilities. However, there are limitations that may affect the utilization of this credit on their personal California state income tax returns. Your clients are asking if they should consent or not consent to the Passthrough Entity Tax election. Should they?
