This session will provide an overview of the centralized partnership audit regime created by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (BBA). The BBA is generally effective for tax years beginning 2018 and later. It replaces the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) partnership audit procedures. The default rule under BBA is that the audited partnership pays an imputed underpayment on audit adjustments.
By the end of this presentation you will be able to:
Identify when clients have a filing responsibility under BBA
Demonstrate when a partnership can elect out of BBA
Determine who can function as a partnership representative
List when a partnership is not permitted to file an AAR
Differentiate between notices during the audit process to notices post the audit process
No prerequisites or advanced preparation are required for this seminar.
