Program Description:

Effective in 2018 (coming like a freight train), a whole new IRS partnership audit regime (Centralized Partnership Audit Rules (CPAR)) kicks in. Partnerships (and LLCs) will become strange new beasts taxed like C Corps. Is this the beginning of the end for partnerships as we know them? Escape routes are available, but not for all. Advance planning is a must to avoid a massive train wreck. All partnership and LLC operating agreements must be amended NOW

In this 2-hour webinar,  you will learn:  

  •  How to avoid getting crushed by IRS collection of income tax from a partnership
  •   How the tax preparer can decimate a partnership’s future (or not)
  •   How to avoid ugly partnership level income tax at highest rate (and no basis step up for partners)
  •   How to safely extricate a client from CPAR devastation
  •   How to protect clients by electing out of new regime - who, how, when and why
  •  How Congress’s Technical Corrections one month ago greatly expanded CPAR
  •  How to identify whether S corporations may look better than partnerships now
  •  How to lead your client to prepare in earnest today

  • But wait, if you can’t elect out, can you switch things up so you can?
  • What is an “imputed underpayment” collectible against the partnership anyway?
  • What is a “push up” election and how does a partnership get decimated without it?
  • Is it true Congress has eliminated basis step-up in a partner’s interest for income fleshed out in an IRS exam?
  • How must partnership/LLC operating, buy-sell, loan, contribution, and dissolution agreements be revised to avoid severe problems?
  • What affirmative actions must the tax preparer take to avoid a parade of horribles?
