Taxpayers File QBI Deduction Computation with IRS Next Year

The IRS on Friday posted a draft of a form that affected taxpayers will submit with their 2019 tax returns showing how they computed their qualified business income (QBI) deduction under Sec. 199A. Taxpayers who have QBI, qualified real estate investment trust (REIT) dividends, or qualified income from a publicly traded partnership (PTP) will use Form 8995, Qualified Business Income Deduction Simplified Computation, to report the computation.

The one-page draft form contains the same computation that is found in the “2018 Qualified Business Income Deduction — Simplified Worksheet,” on p. 37 of this year’s instructions to Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. However, the worksheet is retained by the taxpayer, while Form 8995 will be attached to the taxpayer’s return and submitted to the IRS.
