CPAR - 2019/June, Seg.03 - On Extension: From Capital Accounts to Opportunity Zones

Course Overview
Preparers are now facing a much greater number of returns than usual that are on extension. In order to complete those returns, they may require additional guidance from the IRS or technical corrections from Congress. Richard Shapiro, tax director at EisnerAmper LLP, explains why the Service is now requiring you to report when a partner’s tax basis capital account is negative, and why so many of your clients are interested in opportunity zones.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Identify why the IRS required the reporting of negative capital account balances;
  • Define what a "syndicate" means in IRS-speak;
  • Identify the three tax incentives from qualified opportunity zones; and
