Course Materials

This CLE/CPE course will provide tax counsel and advisers with a review of the application and impact of the new tax bill on pass-through entities. The panel will discuss new tax law changes impacting pass-through entities and provide tax planning strategies to optimize tax benefits and avoid pitfalls.


The tax reform bill contains permanent and comprehensive changes affecting companies of all types. The new law encompasses provisions directly impacting the income of pass-through entities, requiring careful planning to take advantage of the available tax saving options and avoid tax compliance or reporting issues.

The tax bill allows additional benefits to pass-through entities that require an understanding of a variety of complex provisions. Tax counsel and advisers must be aware of the benefits and limitations of Section 199A regarding the deduction of qualified business income, the available loopholes to optimize tax savings for partnerships, LLCs and S corporations, and considerations for possible entity reclassification along with other tactics to reduce taxable income.

Listen as our panel analyzes the complex provisions of tax reform impacting pass-through entities and provides practical methods for compliance and tax savings.



  1. Overview of tax law changes impacting pass-through entities
  2. New Section 199A deductions and pass-through tax breaks and limitations
  3. Section 1061 and the treatment of carried interest under new tax law
  4. Planning techniques and loopholes for pass-through entities
  5. Reevaluating entity classification in light of tax reform


The panel will review these and other high priority issues:

  • Tax considerations for pass-through entities after passage of the new tax bill
  • Qualified business interest deductions and limitations on specified service industries
  • Treatment of carried interest and performance of services
  • Available tax planning techniques and loopholes for partnerships, LLCs and S corporations
  • Entity reclassification considerations for potential tax savings

This is an encore presentation with live Q&A.
