View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This timely, brand-new book examines the provisions of Code Sec.199 that created the new deduction on income from domestic production activities under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. The new provisions can provide a great benefit to both large and small companies--in all types of industries, not just traditional manufacturing companies. However, in order to obtain the attractive tax benefits, there is a good deal of accounting compliance required. All tax practitioners need to educate themselves on Code Section 199 as it relates to many different types of businesses because of the wide reach of the new provisions. The domestic production deduction is available to manufacturers, developers, producers, growers of agricultural products, businesses that extract minerals, contractors, engineers, architects, installers and other entities that derive income from qualified production activities performed in the United States. Code Sec. 199 allows these taxpayers a deduction equal to a percentage of the lesser of either the taxpayer's income for the taxable year generated by qualified production activities; or the taxpayer's taxable income for the taxable year. Congress intended that this deduction be available to as many taxpayers who generate income from qualified production activities as possible, although it has it's origin in global politics and international tax. The deduction is in large part a result of the World Trade Organization's ruling that forced Congress to repeal the Extraterritorial Income Exclusion (ETI). CCH's "Practical Guide to the Sec. 199 Deduction" describes the ins and outs of the tax benefits, who qualifies and how to qualify. It explores what considerations have to be made, how to calculate the deduction, special planning opportunities that may be available and pitfalls to avoid. This enlightening guide offers a straightforward and practical explanation of how the deduction works, how to track and report qualifying costs and revenues, and it provides extensive examples to illustrate the concepts and help the reader grasp the complexities. This book’s author, Jim Kehl, has studied, spoken about and consulted clients and fellow practitioners extensively on the new manufacturer's deduction since it was created in the Fall 2004. His real-world, problem-solving experience and insights into the domestic production deduction is woven throughout this practice manual and will help save readers tremendous time as they grapple to understand the intricacies and applications of this significant new tax code section to gain the benefits it can provide. This practice manual will quickly pay for itself many times over!
