SALT Workaround  (HB 149 Election) Method

Georgia pass-through businesses may elect to pay state income tax at the entity level, thereby enabling the pass-through owners to avoid the $10,000 SALT deduction limitation on their earnings from the business. The tax impact from this election can result in significant cost savings for the business owners.

Business Expense (not making HB 149 election) Method

A brand-new amendment allows pass-through owners to receive a tax credit for up to $25,000 if they anticipate paying that much income tax as a result of their pass-through ownership! (Previous limit was $10,000.) The magic number to justify the $25,000 tax credit is pass-through income of $434,783, which can include both profits and wages from the pass-through. These pass-throughs can also deduct contributions to GOAL if they qualify as ordinary and necessary business expenses.
