Understanding the K-1 Issued by the Limited Partnership or LLC

Understanding the K-1 Issued by the Limited Partnership or LLC

Eliminate errors and gain a better understanding of the K-1. Many people know that a K-1 is used to report items of income, deductions, and loss to partners in a limited or general partnership, or limited liability partnership, or LLLP, or who are members of a limited liability company, but don’t know all of the detail that exists in a K-1. Many people who are partners or members receive a K-1 but don’t know how to closely examine the K-1 for errors, especially those commonly made. For many of those partners or members who discover that their K-1 is wrong, they may not know what to do next. While simply filing a notice of inconsistent treatment (IRS Form 8082) may seem like an easy thing to do, in fact, just the opposite is true. Careful regard must be given to the fact that a dispute has arisen, where state and Federal laws must be considered. An overall strategy is needed. This topic is aimed at helping practitioners more fully understand the issues that need to be addressed when faced with a client who comes to them with a K-1 that they believe is in error, or who have not even received a K-1. For those partners or members who receive a K-1 that they know is wrong, they must take action. Doing nothing is not an option. In this topic, you will be provided the ability to analyze a K-1, and if it is found to be in error, to then decide on an appropriate course of action, in consultation with your advisors.

Learning Objectives
