Maximizing the benefits of the new 20% Qualified Business Income Deduction

presented by


The 20% Qualified Business Income Deduction is potentially one of the most beneficial tax breaks for small businesses in recent history – if it is properly utilized. Because of the law’s complexity, it is vital that small business owners understand how things like entity choice, capitalization decisions, owner’s compensation and more can impact the extent of the benefit gained from it.


Join the Augusta Metro Chamber and SME CPAs to learn more on how to maximize the benefits of the new business income deduction for your business.


Guest speakers:

Paul Wade, Partner at SME CPAs, graduated from Georgia Tech. He worked at E-Z-Go for 4 years before going to graduate school at the University of Georgia. He passed the CPA exam in 2006 with a top 10 score in the state of Georgia.  Paul specializes in corporate and individual tax and accounting.



Ben Braxton earned his Post Graduate Diploma in Financial Economics at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. He moved to Augusta in the fall of 2013 when he joined SME CPAs and earned his CPA designation in 2016. Ben specializes in corporate and individual tax and accounting.
