IRS Form 1065 continues to be a challenge and mistakes are frequently made. Our panel will review the form and explain how common errors can be avoided.  In particular, our panel will review the basis and allocation rules where many errors are made and assist you by reviewing common partnership provisions that affect allocations.

The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 changed partnership audits forever.  TEFRA audit rules are being replaced that impose tax liability at audit at the partnership level even though the partners may have changed, and there is an election to do that now if the partnership elects.  Moreover, allocation errors may result in a true partnership level tax.  Also, the Tax Matters Partner/Member is being replaced by a Partnership Representative who need not be a partner and can bind the partnership at audit. Even the statute of limitations can go beyond three years.  Treasury recently released extensive new regulations on this major change and there are some traps for the unwary.

Additionally, the panel will look at the consequences of the purchase and sale of a partnership interest and the effects of a 754 election.  While often used, the 754 election seems to be misunderstood in its effect and reporting.

There are new, proposed and final regulations under Section 706 for changes in a partner’s interest, complex new proposed regulations under 734(b), changes to the partnership recourse and nonrecourse basis rules under the disguised sale rules, proposed changes to eliminate discounts in family partnership planning and proposed regulations on contributions of built-in loss property.  Our panel will provide an overview of these final and proposed changes.
