The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) contained certain provisions relating to businesses that tax practitioners should know about in order to advise their clients. Certain changes, such as the alternative minimum tax and the stock buyback 1% tax currently apply to a very small number of very large businesses and as such are not a priority for tax practitioners that do not have such clients. Other changes relating to certain energy credits and deductions relating to energy efficiency are applicable to many businesses. These critical changes will be covered in detail in this program.
