This case-driven training is designed to get the inexperienced accountant up to speed quickly in the most common areas of partnership, limited liability company (LLC) and limited liability partnership (LLP) taxation. A cornerstone of this course is the preparation of the Form 1065 using a fairly complex trial balance common to most partnership, LLP and LLC income tax returns.
Partnerships have specific tax reporting requirements that are different from other businesses. Partnership taxes are a two-step process: The partnership as an entity must report income, gains, and losses, and credits, and deductions, like other businesses. However, partnerships don't pay taxes on the income. Instead, the partners pay taxes on their share of the partnership income they're paid. While the partnership pays its partners, the partners aren't employees and don't receive a W-2. Instead, the partnership supplies each partner copies of Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) which reports partners' share of income, credits, and deductions. Here is more about how partnerships report to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the documents needed to file Federal Income Taxes for a partnership.
