Course Description

This webinar provides a comprehensive review of the principles of partnership income tax preparation. You'll cover the reporting of trade and business income and deductions on the Form 1065 as well as details on the schedules and supplemental information that should accompany Form 1065.

Form 1065 is critical for partnerships as it is used to help partners determine their own tax filings. It’s not, necessarily, a form that is required to pay taxes because partnerships are not taxed at the partnership level. Or, are they? Beginning with the 2018 tax year, there is a possibility the IRS could audit a partnership and assess tax as “imputed underpayments.” The Centralized Partnership Audit Regime (CPAR) has changed the landscape for tax professionals and stepped up the due diligence and work necessary to file Form 1065 properly. Careful work on the 1065 could even make sure your partnership clients are not subject to some of the more surprising and harsher elements of the CPAR. 

This webinar will also walk you through the necessary concepts you must understand to file Form 1065. This program discusses how partnerships are treated by the IRS, what is necessary to file Form 1065, and the basic concepts of partnership and partner taxation that apply to pass-through entities including partnerships and LLCs.

This webinar will also cover detailed discussion of planning tips that can be adapted to partnerships and LLCs when filing a Form 1065 as well as an in-depth discussion of some of the more detailed elements of the Form itself. 

In 2017, Congress passed the most significant tax act in over 3 decades. We will also have a high-speed overview of the qualified business income deduction (QBID) and how it works for specific partnership, S corp, and LLC clients.

This webinar would case-study driven training and would explaining with the help of practical examples. This is designed to get 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.

My personal preference is to go straight to the point. A lot of the information on this last video could be summed up into smaller bullet points. Of course this is my pace of learning. Someone else with slower learning curve may benefit.It was a good match for me. This is the perfect course to gain more knowledge regarding tax preparation. My goal is to be a professional tax preparer.


An absolutely amazing webinar. The knowledge I gained is going to help me get better at work and that is for sure. Thanks myCPE and Patrick.
