Virginia taxable income; deduction for small business owners. Creates an income tax deduction for taxable years beginning on and after January 1, 2017, for income attributable to the ownership and operation of a small business. For purposes of the deduction, a small business is defined as a business that has its primary place of business in the Commonwealth, generates less than $100,000 of taxable income in the taxable year, and has fewer than 50 employees. A small business owner would only be eligible to take the deduction for the first five years that the business is in operation. Read the Bill »
