Program Description:

On IRS 2021 Forms 1065, Schedules K-1 and Instructions, IRS continues to ask for tons of detailed information and they’ve changed up the way they ask for it.

In a jolting new move, IRS has made every domestic U.S. Form 1065 preparer responsible to prepare and file Schedules K-2 and K-3 (re: international) (though 99% of the time not needed) or else do massive new due diligence to sidestep the filing requirement.  This course shows you exactly what to do in response.

In a huge new development, IRS released Rev. Proc.s 2021-48, -49 and -50 to allow taxpayers the choice to report PPP debt relief income (and, thus, deduct PPP funded expenses) in their tax year of choice. This opens up a tax planning extravaganza.

In this action packed 3 hour program, you’ll learn:

  1. How new Schedules K-2 and K-3 knock Form 1065 out of orbit and impose stunning new duties on a 1065 preparer’s shoulders
  2. Tweaked (once again) tax basis capital account reporting – What must be computed and disclosed (and by when)
  3. Extraordinary new available tax planning: How partnerships (and S Corps) enjoy optional new timing choices for placement of PPP debt relief income
  4. Plethora of other new info required (built-in gains lying in wait, disregarded entity partners, new tiered partnership reporting and more)


  1. Capital accounts – Tax basis reporting tweaked again
  2. 2021 Form 1065 and Schedule K-1 – Reporting requirements in depth
  3. Disregarded entity partners – Disclosures, depth of implications
  4. 3 year average annual gross receipts test – 5 places it matters
  5. Basis in partner’s partnership interest – New timing, timing, timing, timing
  6. Disguised sales – Form 1065 question re: partner disclosure
  7. §704(c) Built-in gains and loss – New “as-you-go” info required
  8. Aggregation of at-risk activities – Disclosures with sticky implications
  9. Grouping of passive activities – Disclosure and detail required
  10. How every domestic (and foreign) partnership must immediately concern itself with all-new Schedules K-2 and K-3

We can’t wait to be a deer in the headlights. We’ve got to get on this one now.
