This course reviews specialized issues in the taxation of partnerships, LLCs and S Corps. Twelve common issues, each providing significant tax-planning opportunities or potential traps for the unwary, are identified and the tax consequences associated with different types of pass-through entities are explored. Case studies are included with each issue to illustrate how seemingly routine transactions often trigger complex or unexpected tax provisions. Some studies also illustrate how entity choice affects the ultimate tax consequences associated with a particular transaction.
