Partnership Schedule K-1 - What you need to know in light of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act!

Do you feel overwhelmed when your client hands you a Partnership K-1? Where do you start, what questions do you ask, and what do you need to know? What qualifies for the 20% QBI deduction? With the increasing popularity of pass through entities, it is more likely that you may be dealing with a K-1 from a partnership on your client’s tax return. We will discuss how to take the K-1 items to the 1040 Tax Return and practice points on issues such as passive and active participation, basis issues, and unreimbursed partner expenses. Included in this session are real life examples, potential hazards, and resources to keep you in compliance and help you report the K-1 correctly.
