Trade-offs, Traps and Tips: Navigating Tax Changes for Real Estate Partnerships and LLCs

Attorney Presentations, Firm-Sponsored Events

Recent federal regulatory changes could have a major impact on partnerships and limited liability companies, particularly in the real estate sector. This timely and practical presentation will focus on issues to consider as you update and enter into partnership and operating agreements to address the revised audit rules, including the new Partnership Representative provisions, which are effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2018. We will discuss what these new rules and provisions mean to you -- as an investor, general partner/manager or adviser.

In addition, we will discuss the implications of becoming an Electing Real Property Trade or Business (ERPTOB), pursuant to the recently adopted tax reform legislation, and consider the costs, benefits and trade-offs of electing into the ERPTOB regime in order to preserve interest deductions.
