Partnerships and S Corporations How to Calculate Basis

Event: Live Webinar
Event Date: June 28, 2024
Presenter: Jason Dinesen
Event Time: 1:00 PM EST
Duration:120 Minutes


The IRS has recently increased the pressure on how to calculate and report partner and shareholder basis. Changes in the forms reflect these developments. This program provides a detailed analysis of the calculations related to determining tax basis for a partnership interest and S Corporation shareholder shares and loans. How to use the Form 1065, Schedule K-1 and Form 1120S, Schedule K-1 information for basis determination. Illustrated examples with filled in forms will demonstrate how the processes works and their many potential pitfalls.

This two-hour webinar will discuss basis calculations for S-Corps and Partnerships, as well as capital accounts and partnerships. Basis calculations are tricky for practitioners, because basis is actually an individual/Form 1040 concept — individuals are responsible for determining their basis. However, all of the items necessary for making this computation are generated at the S-corporation or partnership level. This training focuses on the numbers necessary to make basis calculations, and what those calculations actually impact. In additions, partnerships now have a requirement to report capital accounts under the tax basis of accounting. Capital accounts ARE an entity requirement (unlike basis). This webinar will cover how to determine capital accounts, and what a capital account affects.
