Basis is a fundamentally important issue when dealing with passthrough entities, as it impacts the equity holders ability to deduct losses and/or receive distributions without a negative tax impact. As well, distributions from the different types of passthrough entities are subject to differences in treatment that can have a major impact on the tax liability of the client. This course will look at the rules on calculating basis, limitations on loss deductions (including at-risk rules) and the treatment of distributions.

Major Topics:

Formation of a new S corporation and contribution of assets in 351 tax free transactions
Issuance of partnership interests in exchange for property in tax free manner under 721
Treatment of issuance of a partnership interest for services

Special partnership basis rules, including required allocations for contributed assets
Under 704 and elective adjustments when a 754 election is in place
Treatment of partnership and S corporation distributions
At risk rules and their limits on losses

Learning Objectives:
