Partnerships and S Corporations, as flow through entities, must report separately-stated items of income or loss. These are items that may differentially impact the tax reporting of partners or shareholders based on the owners’ specific tax positions. The 2017 TCJA continues a trend of adding more items that require additional information reporting by flow through entities. The CARES and CCA legislation add to this trend. Because many provisions of these acts remain unclear, professional advisers may reasonably disagree on the level of specificity to provide to partners and shareholders.

Professional tax advisers will need to understand both the level of detail to provide to owners of flow through entities as well as the specific information to be provided. This session will discuss general tax reporting by a flow through entity, including ordinary and separately-stated items, specific information that must be provided in each type of return, including new questions that must be answered, and it will also address challenges presented by TCJA provisions.

In this two-hour CPE, nationally recognized tax expert and instructor James Hamill, CPA, Ph.D., will explain how to prepare partnership and S corporation tax filings in the most informative way. The instructor’s approach is generally to ask “would I want to see further information or detail if I were preparing the partner or shareholder’s return?”
