Planning to Deduct for Losses this Tax Season? Be Sure to Read the Fine Print.


Deducting losses is a high-priority item for taxpayers in the highest marginal income tax bracket. The topic will be especially relevant during the 2022 tax compliance season because of recent declines in the stock market and a challenging overall business environment.

With that said, you shouldn’t assume that every business operating loss or capital loss on investments will lead to a 1:1 deduction on your tax return. There are significant limitations and qualifications surrounding these losses, so it’s critical to understand the details.

In this article, we provide a primer on some of the loss limitations that are most likely to affect high income taxpayers during the upcoming tax filing season.

Not All Business Losses Are Tax Deductible

Rising interest rates and other effects of surging inflation have created a challenging environment across industries. […]

Deferring a Tax Hit with a Sec. 1031 Exchange


Do you own commercial or investment real estate that has substantially increased in value? If you sell the property, you may be hit with a huge capital gain tax liability. Possible solution: Consider a Section 1031 exchange (also known as a like-kind exchange) in which you swap qualifying properties while paying zero or little current tax.

Recent legislation has narrowed the availability of Sec. 1031 exchanges, but you can still use this technique for qualified real estate transactions. However, keep in mind that a repeal or modification of the rules has been discussed. So, if you’re interested in an exchange, you may want to act soon.

Many companies are eligible for tax write-offs for certain equipment purchases and building improvements. These write-offs can do wonders for a business’s cash flow, but whether to claim them isn’t always an easy decision. In some cases, there are advantages to following the regular depreciation rules. So it’s critical to look at the big picture and develop a strategy that aligns with your company’s overall tax-planning objectives.


Taxpayers can elect to claim 100% bonus depreciation or Section 179 expensing to deduct the full cost of eligible property up front, in the year it’s placed in service. Alternatively, they may spread depreciation deductions over several years or decades, depending on how the tax code classifies the property.

Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), 100% bonus depreciation is available for property placed […]
