This course will walk tax practitioners through reviewing Form 1065, U.S. Return of Partnership Income Tax Return, and its related schedules. Our partnership experts will cover recent changes to the form and schedules, common M-1 adjustments, properly reporting liabilities, key elections, and new considerations for partnership tax returns based on recent guidelines and relief.


Missing common elections and disclosures can prove costly. Electing out of bonus depreciation, Section 754 step-ups, and the repairs and maintenance elections are just a few items that require additional disclosures for a partnership to garner the related tax benefits. Now with massive changes from recent legislation, there are many new considerations. The recent surge in unpaid rent and modified lease terms have tax consequences, and tax basis capital reporting requirements are now effective.

Tax practitioners sometimes scroll through Schedule B questions using the SALY (same as last year) approach. They may assume allocations are made following IRS guidelines and the partnership operating agreement. Knowing how to assess the accuracy of a return quickly is a skill. Knowing how to avoid common, costly errors is necessary for flow-through return preparers.

Listen as our panel of partnership experts explains how to avoid common real estate reporting errors, opportunities to expand services based on the Form 1065 review, allocating income under the partnership operating agreement, and other critical steps to ensure a complete and proper return is filed.
