This CLE teleconference will provide tax counsel with tax considerations when creating, operating and terminating joint ventures. The panel will give special attention to issues involving joint ventures and tax exempt organizations, real estate joint ventures, and joint ventures involving foreign investors.


As markets and economies change, joint ventures have proliferated. A recently emerging trend involves combining private and charitable interests into joint activities involving tax-exempt organizations and either individuals or corporations in which the private interests have a major stake.

Structuring and documenting the deal to define who owns what, who gets what, and when they get it requires complex decisions and involves complicated tax issues. To minimize transaction costs and tax liabilities, the parties must define, from the outset, the parameters of the relationship.

Listen as our authoritative panel of tax experts examines the key tax issues and tax consequences of each provision in structuring a joint venture. The panel will review tax considerations applicable to the creation, operation and termination of joint ventures and discuss special issues involving joint ventures and tax exempt organizations, real estate joint ventures and joint ventures involving foreign investors.
