Do you feel overwhelmed when your client hands you a Partnership K-1? Where do you start, what questions do you ask and what do you need to know? With the increasing popularity of pass through entities, it is more likely that you may be dealing with a K-1 from a partnership on your client’s tax return. This seminar will show you how to take the K-1 items to the 1040 tax return and practice points on issues such as passive and active participation, the Net Investment Income Tax, basis issues and unreimbursed partner expenses. This session includes real life examples, potential hazards and resources to keep you in compliance and help you report the K-1 correctly.
