For all active business entities in the US that are
not rental properties or hobbies, there is a new 20% business deduction that
applies to your overflow income. (This is your income minus your salary) Salary,
in this case, is important since the only
way you can take the 20% deduction is if you take a salary, or in the case of a
partnership, a guaranteed payment. The
term the IRS uses to describe this is Qualified Business Income.
