KSDT L&D: Develop Your Personal Brand [1.5 CPE]

June 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Develop Your Personal Brand [1.5 CPE]



Professional tax advisers almost always use the partnership (or LLC) agreement to determine how to allocate items of income and loss and to identify other issues that may affect both tax compliance and planning considerations for the partnership and its partners. If the provisions of the agreement are ambiguous, the tax adviser is often forced to infer the intent of the agreement. How do you make your best shot at getting the taxation of a partnership right in such instances?
