Partnership/LLC Tax
Workshop

This directed discussion, advanced-level course will review partnership taxation or an LLC taxed as a partnership.  Discussion will cover formation, operation, contributions, and cash distributions.  Recent changes in law or rulings will be emphasized.  The materials will cover dissolution of a partnership and impact of partner's choice on taxes.  One example is the contribution of property to the partnership and its subsequent sale.  The focus will be on small businesses although the instructor may address all types of partnership questions.  Primary materials will be IRS publications, chapters from previous years' books, and IRS forms.  This will be a good review of partnership taxation for those who have partnership returns or for those who want to understand more about partnerships.  You will be working with facts and the tax consequences for partners and the partnership. There are no prerequisite or advanced preparation for this course. The workshop will be held in Raleigh on October 2-3, 2014, from 8:30am-4:45pm and cost is $399.
