- There’s a new sheriff in town: the not-so-new IRS Consolidated Partnership Audit Regime (“CPAR”)September 6, 2018
On January 01, 2018, the CPAR (promulgated under the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015) went into effect. Two sets of related regulations were issued in August 2018. As a result, there is the potential for a federal entity level tax if an election out of the CPAR is not made with each year’s federal partnership tax return. Under the CPAR default regime, tax will be assessed on the partnership in the year that the partnership tax examination or audit becomes final - not the reviewed year (the year under audit). As such, the tax assessed may not be equitable due to partner ownership shifts in subsequent years. The goals of the new regime are two-fold: to increase the IRS collection efficiency and to reinvest resources into increasing the number of partnership audits. Since almost all partnerships and their partners will be effected, this alert summarizes some of the key issues that you will need to consider.

The deduction is limited to the lesser of 20% of the QBI or the greater of 50% of the amount of wages paid to employees or 25% of wages paid to employees plus 2.5% of the unadjusted cost of qualified property. It may be further limited by taxable income at the taxpayer (individual) level.
