On Nov. 28, 2023, the U.S. Tax Court issued an opinion in Soroban Capital Partners LP v. Commissioner, ruling in favor of the IRS with its determination that partners actively participating in state law limited partnerships are not “limited partners, as such” for purposes of the self-employment tax exemption. 

As we approach the end of the year, businesses are focusing on strategies to save money and make financially sound decisions for 2024. A key approach in this endeavor is cost segregation, an effective method to increase near-term cash flow by deferring federal and state income taxes for new constructions, renovations or newly acquired buildings through accelerated depreciation deductions. 

As CBIZ communicated in our previous article, Mark Your Calendars: Pillar Two Compliance Is Around the Corner, multinational enterprises can expect fundamental changes to global taxation.
