Qualified Business Income DeductionThe Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) created the Qualified Business Income(QBI) deduction when the law went into effect in 2018. You might be able to deduct 20% from your qualifying business income if your business is a pass-through entity—a sole proprietorship, an S corporation, or a partnership, passing its income and deductions down to its shareholders, partners, or owners to report on their personal returns.

This deduction is in addition to claiming your ordinary business expense deductions. You should qualify if your taxable income is below $157,500, or $315,000 if you're married and filing a joint return. Special rules apply if you earn more than these amounts, so you might still qualify depending on the nature of your business.1?

The QBI deduction has some other restrictions and limitations, so check with your tax preparer about your eligibility.
