Course Description

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. The Online CPE/CE webinar provides a comprehensive hands-on, pencil-pushing understanding of the preparation of partnership/LLC tax returns, along with the underlying laws, regulations, etc.

This online CPE/CE webinar covers this comprehensive approach in two parts. The first part instruction delivery is geared toward basic understanding and progresses to complex issues. While the second part deals with complex issues on the subject. 

Key topics included in this online CPE workshop:

  • An extensive review of the partnership tax laws with an emphasis on any new legislative changes 
  • Comparison of partnerships, LLCs and LLPs
  • Overview of the formation of a partnership/LLC and the §704(c) pre-contribution gain or loss rules
  • Schedule K analysis– determine if income statement items are separately (i.e. schedule K) or non-separately stated income and expense items
  • How to schedule K items get allocated to partners on schedule K-1s
  • Look at detailed Schedule K-1 information reporting to partners needed for the qualified business income (QBI) deduction, 3.8% net investment income tax and business interest expense limitations
  • Learn the special tax treatment of fringe benefits paid on behalf of the partners and LLC members
  • Discuss partner guaranteed payments and self-employment tax issues.
  • Overview of the tax treatment of distributions, recourse and nonrecourse debt allocations, §754 election for optional basis adjustments and §743/§734 mandatory basis adjustments.

It will look at things such as 704(c) property, disguised sales and basis adjustments. We will not only look at the complex ideas to help you prepare the tax returns, but will also look at how they relate to the tax return and what needs to be done on the tax return. In this part, the speaker will provide a step-by-step practical and interactive insight on complex issues persisting in the world of tax reporting for partnerships.
