Owners of businesses operated through sole proprietorships, partnerships, S corporations, trusts and estates may be eligible to deduct up to 20 percent of their qualified business income, plus 20 percent of qualified real estate investment trust dividends and qualified publicly traded partnership income. Those eligible can claim it for the first time on their 2018 federal income tax returns filed in 2019.
