2023 Tax Year: What to Expect
With the new year comes new changes, and the 2023 tax year is no exception. Here are some of the things that small business owners can expect for the upcoming tax season:
Changes to Tax Rates: The IRS adjusts tax rates annually to account for inflation. In 2023, the tax brackets for individuals and businesses will see slight increases.
Standard Deduction Increases: For individuals, the standard deduction will increase to $13,100 for single filers and $27,700 for married couples filing jointly. For married couples, the standard deduction will increase to $25,800.
Modified Credit for Pension Plan Startup Costs: The SECURE Act increases the Section 45E credit for all or a portion of employer contributions to small employer pensions (for the first five employer tax years) starting in 2023. The credit for employer contributions is capped at $1,000 per employee.
Health Savings Account (HSA) Contribution Limits: The contribution limits for HSAs will increase slightly in 2023. For individuals, the contribution limit will be $3,850, and for families, it will be $7,750.
Net Operating Rules: The rules around how to claim a net operating loss are changing this year. Now you cannot offset more than 80% of your taxable income.
Cryptocurrency Taxation: With the rise of cryptocurrency, the IRS has been cracking down on individuals and businesses that fail to report their crypto transactions. In 2023, businesses that accept cryptocurrencies as payment will need to report those transactions on their tax returns.
Changes to Retirement Plan Limits: Contribution limits for 401(k) plans and other retirement plans will see modest increases in 2023.
