The upcoming tax changes for corporations make 2018 a great year to start your ROBS funded corporation! Why? Glad you asked! Here are the Selden notes. Like Cliff notes, except my name isn’t Cliff, and he is already using that name for his notes.
Corporate Tax Cuts # 1 – The Rate
The tax rate for big businesses decreases from 35 percent to 20 percent starting in 2019, a large reduction that would put the U.S. corporate tax rate at a lower level than many other foreign nations. Currently, many of my clients plan company spending (including their own personal salary) to minimize, if not eliminate, their corporate taxes. Still a consideration, but not as serious given the next issue.
Corporate Tax Cuts # 2 – Depreciation
Mention the word “depreciation” to most accountants and they will grimace. Why do we need to follow the complicated set of depreciation rules for different assets? Because Congress said so. Thankfully, Congress changed its collective mind. Companies will be able to write off most of their expenses for new buildings and other investments for the next five years. No more need to choose which assets to buy based on depreciation schedules versus the corporations need for deductions. high earnings this year? Want to expand for new growth? More $$ to spend when one does not have to factor is the taxes owed on money spent because of depreciation schedules.
Corporate Tax Cuts # 3 – Foreign Assets
The tax bill shifts the tax system on businesses from a worldwide system in which U.S. companies are taxed on all income earned all over the world to a territorial system where businesses are mainly taxed on their earnings in the United States. I have very few clients who create income overseas, but for the ones who do, this is a long awaited change. We are the only industrialized country who taxed its citizens and corporations on a worldwide system. This change is also good for foreign relations.

I had two calls last week from people who were confused about the ROBS process. Both of them already set up contracts with ROBS promoters! I answered a couple of questions to be helpful, but I am not going to do those companies jobs for them. If you want a ROBS set up done right, all us. Preferably before you sign up with one of the big promoters who won’t answer your legal questions for you.
