Speaker: Jane Ryder, EA, CPA

Complete and accurate partnership basis calculations, inside and outside, offer substantial tax savings for partner loss utilization and reducing tax on excess distributions or the sale of a partnership interest. Partnership basis is currently an IRS compliance target and we need to understand the many recent changes for partnership basis K-1 reporting as the individual or the business tax preparer we need confidence in our basis reporting skills. We need strong skills related to the many components of basis; allocating profit, losses, and other Schedule M-1 adjustments, partnership contributions, loans to the partnership, loan guarantees, distributions, partner benefits, sale of a partnership interest, distributions of partnership assets and more. Basis is the first of four loss limitations a partner is subject to before benefiting from pass-through losses on their individual taxes, if the basis is wrong the partner may miss a valid pass-through loss, overpay taxes on distributions or the sale of a partnership interest, have a weaker position when negotiating a partnership buy out and possibly be exposed to compliance and audit risk.
