Course Description

The basis of a partner in a partnership and of an S Corp shareholder are similar, and the basis for each type of business serves the same purposes. When deductions or losses are passed through to either a partner or shareholder, the calculated basis puts a limit on tax deductions.

Basis in a flow-through business is key to deducting losses and calculating gains or losses on disposition. Certain losses deductible by partners in partnerships are not deductible by S corporation shareholders.

Shareholders track their basis using accumulated adjustment accounts, while partners use capital accounts. Both are increased by flow-through income, contributions of cash or property, and reduced by distributions and deductions. Similarly, both owners are also subject to at-risk rules before loss deductions are allowed.

Planning techniques are available to increase the basis in these flow-through entities to deduct current year losses. Ordering rules for loss deductions and restoration of basis are complex.

Tax practitioners need to understand the similarities and differences in basis calculations for owners of both partnerships and S corporations to report annual flow-through income and deductions and ultimately the gain or loss on the disposition of these entities.

This CPE/CE tax course will cover all a practitioner needs to know about calculating the basis for shareholders of S-corporations and partners in a partnership. In particular, it will cover new items such as the new Form 7203 from the IRS, for tracking the basis of S-Corp shareholders.

In this CPE/CE course speaker will also cover the differences in basis tracking between the 2 types of entities and discusses best practices for practitioners.
