Notes: This webinar is produced by California Ed Foundation. You will receive login instructions for your webinar at least two business days prior to the program date. Please note that these instructions will be sent by CALEd along with your CPE certificate upon completion of the webcast.

Focus on section 754 elections and the impact on purchases, inheritances, and partnership distributions (sections 743 and 734). Secondly, focus on redemptions of a partner including those involving the retirement of a partner or the death of a partner (sections 731, 732, 742, and 736).

Discuss these topics while using case studies. Competing concerns of the partners are emphasized: e.g., conflicts between a buying partner or beneficiary and the continuing partners; and conflicts between a redeemed partner and the continuing partners. Form 1065 preparer reporting obligations, partner capital account impact, and pertinent sample language in partnership agreements will also be discussed.

Materials are provided as an ebook for this course.
