The 52nd Annual Heckerling Institute will feature an in-depth look at what estate planners need to do in 2018 to prepare for the new partnership centralized audit rules. Every partnership (including large, small, and family partnerships) must amend its agreement beginning with its 2018 tax year. Partnerships with trusts, grantor trusts, limited liability companies, other partnership or disregarded entities as partners, cannot elect out of these new rules, and every partnership must appoint a Partnership Representative for each tax year even if it elects out of these new rules. The new rules create complexity and decisions that must be discussed with every partnership you represent. Our 90 minute program will provide an overview of the new audit rules as well as practical advice on how partnership agreements should be amended to address the issues. (Thursday, Special Session IV-F)
