After nearly 27 years the IRS has finally gotten around to proposing closure to a number of the §2704 “loopholes” that have benefitted many family-owned businesses. Should the changes be enacted, as proposed, the family-controlled corporation, partnership, LLC and other forms of family-owned businesses will be directly affected. Here’s the reason why.
On December 15th of 2015, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., announced to the Republican lawmakers during a conference meeting that negotiators have reached an agreement in principle on a tax-extenders package worth approximately $800 billion. In addition, an agreement was also reached that would fund the federal government through September 30th of 2016. The bills are expected to arrive on the House floor as early as December 17th with the Senate consideration expected before Congress adjourns for recess.
