This course will bring you up to date on the important tax issues affecting your clients operating as partnerships and limited liability companies. Partnership and LLC taxation can be complicated. Congress, by enacting stiffer tax return preparer penalty rules, has said, in essence, that you must be a knowledgeable tax preparer of these returns. Your instructor will address the important tax issues of contributed property and maintaining capital accounts; special allocations and substantial economic effect; the importance of the qualified income offset to members of LLCs; the tax definition of recourse and non-recourse debt, and how it is allocated and reported on the K-1; what you must know about how the at-risk rules apply to LLCs; the importance of the Texas LLC statute; and much more! While there are no prerequisites, parts of the course will seem basic, intermediate, or advanced, depending on your familiarity in the area.
As a participant, you will receive an excellent resource, Practical Guide to Partnerships and LLCs, a 577-page eighth edition textbook published by CCH, Inc. The textbook is comprehensive, clearly written and provides practical guidance on this complex subject.
