FDII Calculation Summary

  1. DEI =$250,000. Total Amount of Income.
  2. FDDEI = $50,000.
  3. DII = DEI of 250,000 – QBAI of $30,000 = $220,000.
  4. FDII = DII of $220,000 * (50,000 of FDDEI/250,000 of DEI) = $44,000.
  5. FDII = $44,000.
  6. FDII Deduction = 44,000 * 37.5 = $16,500.
  7. Taxable FDII = 44,000 – 16,500 = $27,500.

The adjusted bases are determined using straight-line depreciation, and QBAI does not include land, intangible property, or any assets that do not produce DEI. So the QBAI computation is critical, as any reduction in the QBAI amount increases the FDII by 10% and, as such, can have a material impact on FDII.
