As they gain more experience, staff are expected to take on more complex assignments with minimal supervision. The course is designed to be a stepping stone for staff interested in pursuing more advanced partnership and LLC issues than mere preparation, via deeper life-cycle study into critical areas of formation, special allocations of income and deductions, basis calculations and implications of recourse and nonrecourse debt, basis step-up under ยง754 on transfer of an ownership interest, distributions, self-employment tax issues, and termination/liquidation of the LLC. With the right blend of legal and tax ramifications of LLC-specific issues, this course identifies all the major areas that are potential sources of increased complexity.
