3.8% Federal Net Investment Income Tax Challenges for Tax Professionals
Tackling Tax Compliance and Planning for High-Income Individuals and Pass-Through Entities
Recording of a 110-minute CPE/CLE webinar with Q&A
This webinar will address practical planning and compliance issues that taxpayers should anticipate arising from the 3.8% net investment income (NII) tax, given the likelihood for their drawing extra IRS attention.
- Mechanics and thresholds of the 3.8% NII tax
- Special issues for individual, estate and trust taxpayers
- Potential issues for business taxpayers and investors in businesses
- Passive vs. active activities
- Impact on sales or transfers of interests in closely held entities
The panel will explore relevant and practical topics such as:
- Surprises in the working capital exception for owners of non-passive businesses using investment or interest-bearing accounts.
- How to regroup activities and potentially meet the material participation standards for non-passive activity.
- Rental activities such as "triple net leases" that seem most likely to draw an IRS challenge.
- Steps for a deemed sale analysis before selling a partnership or S corporation interest.
