New IRS Partnership Transfer Rules for Contributions of Appreciated Property to Partnerships With Foreign Partners
Understanding Impact of IRS Notice 2015-54 and Preserving Nonrecognition Treatment
Recording of a 90-minute CLE/CPE webinar with Q&A
This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax counsel with an exploration into the ramifications of IRS Notice 2015-54, released Aug. 6, 2015, which will generally make a taxable event of any contribution of appreciated property by a U.S. person to a related partnership, unless strict requirements are satisfied. The panel will review the current rules, describe the changes — the most important of which are already in effect — and discuss tools to work around the recognition requirement.
- Current rules on contributions to foreign partnerships
- Notice 2015-54 rule changes requiring recognition of gain on contribution of appreciated property
- How to defer gain recognition
- Effect on IRS authority to make adjustments under Section 482
The panel will discuss these and other critical questions:
- What are the technical terms and mechanics of the new regulations?
- What effect will the new regulations have on existing partnership arrangements?
- What are the requirements for the gain deferral method?
