Partnership Tax Exams: Getting Ready for the Major Changes (PTEGR4)

NEW! 4-Hour Program

WHY ATTEND THIS COURSE?

While searching for a source of revenue enhancement for the 2015 budget, Congress decided to radically change the way partnership tax returns are examined in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (BBA). The new regime applies to tax years beginning in 2018, but partnership agreements will be modified as we approach the beginning date.

This course will allow you to help partnerships make decisions regarding changes that may be made to partnership agreements, plus ready you to assist partnerships with future tax exams.
