The new tax code law has maintained most of the self-employment deductions and now has included some new deductions to help offer some relief. Some of the tax deductible benefits the self-employed can look to claim this year is: receiving a deduction on 50 percent of the Social Security and Medicare taxes your pay as both employer and employee; you will still be able to deduct 50 percent on food and beverages having to do with business, though certain entertainment expenses have been eliminated. Small businesses now have a new deduction, the Qualified Business Income Deduction (QBI), in which they can deduct up to 20 percent of their QBI.Learn More
Senator Ana Quezada of Rhode Island is proposing that the state enact a 1 percent tax on the sales of hookah and vaping products. The senator plans to use the money from the acquired sales tax on the products to send back to cities and towns to go toward educating the youth on the dangers of smoking e-cigarettes. A spokesman for the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association argued that the state has plenty of money to already educate the youth with the nearly $200 million they collected in 2018 from tobacco revenue. He also went on to say the tax would be a punishment to those looking to get away from smoking tobacco products.Learn More
This year has seen the biggest tax overhaul in years from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Unfortunately, the new cap on SALT tax deductions hurt many residents as the automobile taxes, high real estate taxes, and high state taxes for both Massachusetts and Rhode Island caused many to go over the $10,000 threshold.Learn More
