As the holidays approach, JLK Rosenberger is taking a new perspective on a holiday classic – the Twelve Days of Christmas. Rather than filling your head with turtle doves and gold rings, we are going to instead focus on the latest changes to SSAP and how they will impact your insurance company in 2019 and beyond.
On the first day of SSAP JLK Rosenberger told to me –INT 18-03: Additional Elements Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Reading time: 45 seconds
INT 18-03 provides reporting guidance for three issues related to impact from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) signed into law in 2017. The guidance relates to reporting Repatriation Transitional Tax (RTT), Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) credit and Global Intangible Low-taxed Income (GILTI).
While RTT and GILTI deal with foreign income and may not affect domestic insurers, the guidance on AMT will likely affect most companies.
The TCJA eliminated the AMT. Companies can realize 100% of its AMT receivables to offset regular tax obligations through 2021. If the AMT credit carryforward is not used to reduce regular taxes, 50% can be recovered as a refund to the extent not used in 2018 – 2020, with 100% refund by 2021.
GAAP and STAT guidance permit reporting AMT credits as a current-year recoverable or a deferred tax asset (DTA). If reported under a DTA under STAT, the AMT credits would be subject to admissibility.
Join us tomorrow for day 2 in the 12 days of SSAP. If you have questions about TCJA and how it will impact your insurance entity, please call us at 818-334-8623, or click here to contact us. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
