Description

Tax distributions provide a means for partners to pay the tax liabilities resulting from allocations of partnership income. Often partnership arrangements are very complex and correspondingly have complex allocations. Thus, there is no one-size-fits-all approach or template for providing for tax distributions in a partnership agreement. In fact, depending on the particulars of the deal, these provisions can vary greatly.

In this seminar, the presenters will discuss various issues to address in drafting tax distributions and the pitfalls of failing to account for certain key considerations.
