The IRS issued a long-awaited safe harbor for when real estate rental qualifies as a trade or business for purposes of the 20% deduction for qualified business income under IRC § 199A. We will review the rules for rental under Code § 199A and explain how the new safe harbor fits into the framework. We will explore a smattering of recent developments in partnership tax, such as final regulations discussing employee vs. partner in tiered structures, the nature of interest expense when a partnership interest changes hands, and the effect of changes on inside basis when an interest in a tiered structure changes hands. Finally, we will discuss the income taxation of intellectual property and other intangibles in light of 2017 tax reform.
