You should attend this program because it will discuss in a practical way how a partner or member's basis in a partnership (or LLC treated as a partnership) is calculated. This topic is particularly important for any tax practitioner who deals at even a basic level with partnership distributions of cash and property and/or the sale of a partnership interest. The concept of basis is fundamental to an understanding of almost all aspects of partnership taxation.
Note: The Section 754 adjustment is not a topic of this program. However, that topic is discussed in great detail in S754, Section 754 Step-Up in Basis: Understanding the Tax Issues for Partnerships and LLCs. For information on this and other webinars covering that topic, please contact Surgent.
