Biden-Harris Tax Proposals: Section 199A Disparities

Watch Benjamin M. Willis, contributing editor with Tax Notes Federal, and Jed Bodger, vice president of taxation at the Sierra Nevada Corp., discuss their recent article examining how the Biden-Harris proposed corporate tax and long-term capital gains rates increases logically lead to eliminating all or part of section 199A passthrough deduction to mitigate tax rate disparities and choice of entity gamesmanship.

Here are a few highlights . . .

On the goals of section 199A

Jed Bodger: [Section 199A] creates disparity and different rate pools for different types of businesses. On a broad scale, section 199A is a tax deduction for passthrough entities like partnerships, [limited liability companies], and S corporations, and it is available for qualified trades and businesses.

What section 199A does is provide a 20 percent deduction for qualified business income, which reduces the overall effective rate for members or partners of these passthrough entities from

Albert ’Al’ Collette cherished food, family, faith at Pueblo business – News – The Pueblo Chieftain

Food, like family and faith, was always dearest to the heart of Albert “Al” Collette.

In June 1973, Collette’s Catering was inadvertently launched when Collette and his wife JoAnna catered a niece’s wedding.

The response was so efficacious that five years later, Collette left his job at Alpha Beta to open the Northern Avenue staple that continues to proclaim his name and legacy.

On Aug. 25, Collette, the patriarch of a family business that he operated until the age of 75, died at the age of 83.

The importance of food, for both sustenance and enjoyment, was a life lesson Collette passed on to his family, noted Patrick Collette, who along with his sister, JoAnna Yarberry, runs the business.

“Growing up, we didn’t have much money and Dad worked three jobs,” said Patrick Collette. “Dad turned the entire backyard into a garden. He grew vegetables, raised chickens, goats and rabbits.

India’s Central Bank To Measure Digitization

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is moving forward with plans to publish an index showing the extent of digital payment adoption in the country, a top executive at the bank told an online conference hosted by a trade group Wednesday (Sept. 9), according to published reports.

“RBI is in the process of … constructing and periodically publishing a composite digital payment index (DPI) to capture the extent of digitization. The DPI could be the key to accurately measure the deepening and penetration of digital payments across the country,” T. Rabi Sankar, executive director of the bank, said in a U.S.-India Business Council webinar.

Sankar told the group digital payments in the country are expanding quickly, but said penetration remains low among populations that could especially benefit from using them, the financial news site Live Mint reported.

The Historic King Drive Business Improvement District is centered on that street between West McKinley Avenue and West Locust Street.
