Breaking Down the New Changes in Meals and Entertainment Tax Deductions

When Congress enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) in December 2017, it had to make difficult trade-offs, as popular deductions had to be sacrificed in order to obtain lower across-the-board tax rates. In order to balance the tax benefits the TCJA provided, Congress decided to restrict the deductibility of meals and entertainment. The new tax law all but abolishes the deduction for entertainment but keeps (with some new restrictions) the deduction for business meals.

  • How these impacts will affect your organization
