This CLE/CPE webinar will guide tax professionals in navigating partnership tax compliance issues and IRS examinations. The panel will discuss new reporting requirements for international transactions, new required Schedules K-2 and K-3 for reporting partners' income, deductions, and credits from foreign activity, and tax planning considerations for pass-through entities in light of recent LB&I campaign initiatives.

Description

Tax compliance for partnerships and other pass-through entities has become more complex over the past year. Tax counsel must recognize the challenges of new reporting requirements for international transactions and implement strategies to ensure compliance.

Recently, the IRS released guidance for implementing new international reporting requirements for pass-through entities with global operations or foreign partners. Tax practitioners must understand the application of various international tax provisions at the partner or S corporation shareholder level to assess international transactions properly, foreign tax credit limitations, and required tax forms.

For partnerships, new Schedules K-2 and K-3 have been added for the 2021 tax year reported in 2022. Schedule K-2 is similar to the current Schedule K, and Schedule K-3 is similar to the current Schedule K-1, but both include foreign reportable items. Schedules K-2 and K-3 contain the partnership's share of recent international transactions, foreign tax credit limitation information, IRC Section 250 deduction for FDII, GILTI inclusions, and other essential information to properly report foreign income, credits, and deductions on partners' returns.

Listen as our panel of international tax experts discusses new reporting requirements for international transactions, new required Schedules K-2 and K-3 for reporting partners' income, deductions, and credits from foreign activity, and tax planning considerations for pass-through entities.
