Anonymous 7 days ago
This book is so misleading and bias. This book may be helpful for people that are curious about the tax changes but it’s not beneficial in the preparation of taxes. The book starts of by saying there is a lot of loopholes that people are now allowed to benefit from. However, all the loopholes that benefit the middle class are no longer available. These new law changes are not loopholes. A few reasons this book is misleading: It states people are now allowed to use a 529 plan to pay for private education. You can do like-kind exchanges tax free. You benefit from a deduction when you buy a new “luxury” vehicle. There is a lower limitation for medical expenses, and People were not taking advantage of the sale tax for itemized deductions. And the list goes on. Yes, with the TCJA you are now allowed to use up to $10,000 of your 529 plan to pay for eligible education expenses not considered higher education. What people don’t realize is, 529 are tax deductible at the state level not federal. You have to make sure a distribution is not taxable in your state. There’s always been loop-holes around like-kind exchange. Except now you’re not allowed to do exchanges with used property. Vehicle deductions are only allowed as business expenses at the business level. Meaning, you can no longer deduct unreimbursed business expenses. Also if you forgo the bonus election for one asset, all assets placed in service that year also forgone. The whole medical deductions are so misleading. For the last 4 years the limitation has fluctuated from 7.5% to 10%. The book states the new tax cut has reduced the limitation to 7.5% of AGI, making this a big win for those itemizing. Yet, they fail to mention that the limitation will rise back to 10% next year. So where is this actual savings? Lastly, they mentioned this unused tax deduction. They mention people were unaware of the sales tax deduction. People could deduct their sales taxes and it’s been capped at $10,000 this year. A quick google search could quickly inform you about this “unused deduction”. You’re allowed to deduct either your state taxes or your sales tax. You’re not allowed to deduct both. Those who are eligible to itemize tend to use the state taxes, (state taxes withheld, real estate taxes, personal property tax) since it’s more beneficial. States that do not have state income taxes may use the sales tax. However, states like Florida and Texas do have a higher living cost so there property taxes may equal or exceed the $10,000 limit. They also fail to mention that foreign real estate taxes are no longer deductible. If you’re trying to learn about the tax changes I recommend reading the publications. At this point they’re free and accurate. If you’re naive and really want to know about all the good stuff then this is the book for you.
