Program Materials

This CLE webinar will discuss unique allocation issues for tiered partnerships under 704(b) and (c), address application of the allocation rules to mergers and dispositions of 704(c) property, as well as basis adjustments.

Description

Allocation provisions in partnership and LLC agreements are complex to administer and subject to highly specialized rules regarding the handling of gains, losses, depreciation and other tax attributes. These complexities are further magnified when working with tiered partnerships.

Section 704(c) limits the ability of a partner to transfer loss by contributing built-in loss property to a partnership. Practitioners must properly apply the rules relating to the creation and maintenance of multiple layers of forward and reverse section 704(c) gain and loss to tiered partnerships.

There are consequences under Sections 704(c) and 737 of certain partnership mergers and the treatment of section 704(c) layers in connection with partnership mergers. In disposing of 704(c) property, special rules apply to coordination between the upper and lower tier partnerships regarding basis adjustments.

Listen as our authoritative panel of practitioners guides you through special tax issues with tiered partnerships, including 704(b) and (c) allocations, mergers, dispositions of 704(c) property and the attendant basis adjustments issues.
