Partnership Tax Planning Seminar

people meeting at a conference table

Program Details

Thursday, September 19, 2019
Delta Hotels by Marriott (formerly Trader Dukes), 1117 Williston Road, South Burlington, VT
Speaker - Gregory Bouchard
8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This seminar is an advanced course designed to focus on partner sales and other transitions in ownership. It will discuss the strategies when planning for ownership changes as well as the accounting and tax treatment when they have occurred. Greg will explain how to take advantage of the partnership structure to both build the net worth of the younger generation while providing for the comfortable exit of the older generation. Along the way, the Internal Revenue Tax Code (IRC) has placed a few land mines but also some nuggets of gold. His goal is to provide an effective road-map to increase the after-tax wealth of your clients.

This seminar will cover:

  • Overview of Partnership and Taxes
  • Gifting and Sale of Partnership Interests
  • Guaranteed Payment Strategies
  • Capital Account and Basis Tracking
  • Transfer of Ownership Planning
  • Case Study with Forms Review
  • Qualified Business Income Deduction (QBI)
