This webinar will provide tax professionals and advisers with a critical early look at available measures to correct errors on Form 1065 U.S. Return of Partnership Income arising from specific provisions of the 2017 tax reform law. The panel will focus on the recent IRS guidance allowing certain partnerships to file superseding 1065 returns and will discuss situations where IRS guidance issued after the filing of the original return necessitates corrections. The webinar will also outline available elections and relief requests.

Description

Practitioners continue to wrestle with 2017 tax reform and evolving IRS guidance in the wake of massive changes to partnership taxation and a new centralized partnership audit regime. Tax advisers and compliance professionals serving partnerships now face the task of determining whether the first years' tax returns filed after the new law are compliant.

Beyond the complex new 199A provisions, partnership and LLC entities also are faced with significant new calculations, interest limitations, tax basis disclosures, and partnership audit rules. Partnership tax advisers should review the first two years' filings to protect pass-through clients from errors and miscalculations.

The new rules prohibit partnerships from filing amended returns for the current tax year. However, the Code provides several avenues for correcting Form 1065 errors. The IRS, recognizing the likelihood of incorrect partnership filings, recently issued Rev. Proc. 2019-32, extending the timeline for filing superseding returns for the 2018 tax year for certain partnerships.

Listen as our experienced panel provides a critical first look at available elections and relief provisions to correct errors on partnership tax returns resulting from the new tax law and centralized audit regime.
