ROBERT HORWITZ, CORY STIGILE and JONATHAN KALINSKI to Speak at Upcoming Strafford Webinar

We are pleased to announce that Robert Horwitz, Cory Stigile and Jonathan Kalinski will be speaking at the upcoming Strafford webinar, “Partnership Losses in Excess of Basis: Preparing for the IRS’ New Audit Campaign” on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, 10:00 a.m. – 11:50 a.m. (PST).

This webinar will prepare pass-through advisors to withstand IRS challenges to partners’ basis calculations. Our panel of federal tax experts will guide partners and tax professionals through the calculations necessary to determine a partner’s basis in a partnership, the IRS examination, and handling prior period capital account errors.

In February 2022, the IRS announced its latest partnership campaign would include audits of partners’ deductions of flow-through losses from partnerships. The Service believes that partners are deducting losses in excess of basis rather than suspending these losses when required. Although new, this action is not unanticipated. The IRS has heightened its ability to track partners’ capital by implementing requirements to report negative tax basis capital in 2019, all partners’ capital accounts beginning in 2020, and added disclosures for Section 704(c) built-in gains and losses. The IRS is using data analytics to identify partnerships that are most likely noncompliant.

Practitioners who have been scrambling to meet these added reporting requirements now must prepare to defend these positions and calculations reported. Determining a partner’s outside basis, including whether tax basis capital has been appropriately captured and a partners’ share of liabilities, is complicated. Recent reporting rules have led to the discovery of allocation errors.

Pass-through entity advisers need to prepare for upcoming examinations and know how to handle audits of pass-through entities.

Listen as our panel of IRS examination experts explains how to properly maintain and support partners’ basis in partnerships and how to defend these calculations when representing partners.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be able to offer a limited number of complimentary and reduced cost tickets for this program on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in attending, please contact Sharon Tanaka at
