Meals & Entertainment

July 11, 2019

If you own a business there are two significant changes to meals and entertainment that you need to be aware of when recording expenses. Previously, you could take a 50 percent deduction for entertainment such as taking a client to a sporting event, now entertainment expenses are no longer deductible. Meals have also had a significant change. For example, if you bring in meals for your team you previously could deduct 100 percent, now you are limited to a 50 percent deduction.

IRA Contributions

You should plan to make this contribution before you file your 2019 tax return. The annual contribution limit is $6,000, or $7,000 if you are the age of 50 or older.
