This three-day seminar will trace the partnership tax rules from the birth of the partnership through its operating life, with emphasis on tax issues and planning strategies and opportunities, and then, since such ventures frequently unwind, will focus on exit strategies and tax planning possibilities in unwinding.
Some of the sessions on the first day are intended to review the basics. Special attention will be given to planning under recently finalized sets of regulations and proposed regulations, and to changes wrought by recent legislation and legislative proposals. Speakers from Treasury and the IRS will be joining the more advanced panels to discuss cutting-edge issues. The afternoon of the third day will be committed to international joint venture tax planning including the use of hybrids.
