This webinar will provide tax advisers and compliance professionals with a practical guide to navigating the multistate reporting complexities in multi-tiered partnerships. The panel will outline various state rules governing apportionment of income from lower-tier pass-through entities, withholding requirements, and composite return provisions. The panel will also discuss state approaches to honoring IRC 743(b) adjustments from the upper-tier to the lower-tier partnerships.

Description

A significant challenge for tax advisers to tiered partnerships is determining various states' tax treatment of tiered entities, mainly when a lower-tier partnership is located in a different state than the upper-tier owner. Because of the inconsistency in various state treatments, tax advisers often face complex, sometimes conflicting, rules in determining how the upper-tier entity resident state will treat pass-through items of income and loss from lower-tier entities.

Advisers to upper-tier partnerships must determine how the entity's lower-tier pass-through items are treated in the resident state. Ascertaining whether the lower-tier partnership's apportionment factors flow through to the upper-tier entity materially affects the partnership's income/loss calculations.

Likewise, navigating various states' withholding requirements and determining when a lower-tier's resident state allows--or mandates--composite filings is also a crucial and difficult task. Tax advisers need to fully grasp the significant factors in determining various states' tax treatment of multi-tier partnerships when the lower-tier partnership is a nonresident.

Listen as our experienced panel offers a practical guide to navigating multistate complexities and approaches to taxing tiered partnerships with nonresident lower-tiers.
