SSI Webcast to Make Sense of U.S. Tax Code Overhaul

On Feb. 28, SSI Industry Hall of Famer Mitch Reitman will explain how to navigate some of the changes and inconsistencies to the tax code.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — The next installment of the SSI Industry Hall of Fame Educational Webinar Series will feature Mitch Reitman explaining inconsistencies with the new tax code, as well as opportunities for small businesses.

The Trump administration’s $1.5 trillion in tax cuts came into effect in January 2018 and were the biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in more than 30 years. The massive stimulus package cut the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35%.

During the Feb. 28 (2 p.m. EST) webcast, SSI Industry Hall of Famer Mitch Reitman, president of Reitman Consulting Group, will simplify the new IRS Code Section 199a that deals with huge tax credits for certain small businesses. He will also discuss changes in the deductibility of certain expenses and address questions for alarm dealers such as:

  • How do I position my business to take advantage of the new Section 199a 20% pass through credit?
  • What isn’t deductible anymore and what should I do?
  • How do I navigate some of the changes and inconsistencies in the tax code and make them into opportunities?
