This comprehensive training is designed to get the accountant up to speed quickly with partnership and limited liability company (LLC) formation and preparation issues as well as a complete understanding of calculating a partner and LLC member’s basis. The cornerstone of this course is the in-depth line-by-line analysis of the Form 1065 Schedule K and K-1 and how these items affect the partner/member’s individual income tax return.


Each attendee will receive the most comprehensive reference manual with numerous practice aids and real-world examples and case studies. Topics include but are not limited to:

Extensive review of the partnership tax laws with an emphasis on any new legislative changes including the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (TCJA) new 20% qualified business income (QBI) deduction and changes to the interest deduction, fringe benefits and entertainment expenses
Review the Form 1065 to learn how income statement items get reported on the partnership/LLC tax return (i.e. page 1 versus Schedule K) and flow-thru to the partner/members on Schedule K-1
Analyze the Schedule K-1 line-by-line and discuss where the items get reported on the individual’s Federal income tax return and how the items affect the partner/member’s outside basis
Look at what relevant information related to the 3.8% net investment income tax needs to be reported to the partners/members
Formation issues including the mandatory allocation of the §704(c) pre-contribution gain or losses back to the contributing partner/member
The purpose of tax and §704(b) book capital account
