Course Description

Preparing and interpreting Form K-1 can be daunting even for experienced tax accountants. Proper completion of a client's federal Schedule K-1s to report a partner's share of a partnership's income, gains, losses, etc. has long presented challenges to tax advisers, particularly for specialized investment partnerships such as fund of funds or master limited partnerships. Changes to the Schedule K-1 beginning with the 2018 tax year may create additional complexity for partnerships and their tax advisers. The updated Schedule requires taxpayers to disclose the recipient partner's beginning share of partnership liabilities, as opposed to only the ending amount, which will help in tracking a partner's basis. 

This Online CPE webinar will look at Passive activities and try to simplify the rules to make them easy! Passive activities have been around since the 1980s and tend to be a complex area of taxation. We will look at the general rules of passive activities and then look at the more complex issues such as grouping and proper tax planning.  

This CPE session will also cover the passive activity rules by explaining why they exist and their overall philosophy, describing their mechanics in terms attendees can understand, and illustrating planning strategies to use with clients.
