Back in 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) was signed in an effort to support restaurants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and it allowed companies to deduct 100% of business expenses. However, the CAA ended on January 1, 2023, and now meal and entertainment deductions have reverted to the limits enacted under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). For tax year 2023, a large percentage of business meal deductions will be 50% deductible, but entertainment deductions remain non-deducible under TCJA.

Special Tax Benefit for Inheritances
You may have heard the term “Stepped-Up Basis”, that many believe is a tax provision that allows beneficiaries of an inheritance to reduce or even avoid taxes when and if they sell inherited property.
If an individual sells property, any gain from the sale of that property is taxable. The tax term “basis” is the value from which any taxable gain is measured. In regard to personal use or investment property, the basis is generally the cost of the property.
