The panel will review these and other notable issues:
- What is the impact of the dual authority for insolvent pass-through entity owners to terminate and elect entity tax classification?
- What are the key differences in handling insolvency for shareholders and partners?
- What tax attributes can defer gain recognition, and how are they ordered?
- Which taxpayers are eligible for the qualified real property indebtedness relief?
- What guidance can tax advisers offer to overcome creditor challenges to an insolvent pass-through changing its tax status to avoid attribution of COD income to its owners?
