QBI Deduction- Trump will not change or expand the deduction based on a non-corporate owner’s qualified business income. Biden proposes expanding and simplifying the deduction for profitable pass-through entities that aren’t involved in rental real estate activities. In general, his plan would limit QBI deductions for those earning more than $400,000 per year.

Green tax breaks- Trump does not have plans to add or expand any existing green tax breaks as of yet. Biden’s plan calls for reinstating or expanding Obama-era green tax breaks.
