The K-1: How To Handle Errors And Disputes
About This Course:
This webinar is aimed at helping practitioners more fully understand the issues that need to be addressed when faced with a client who either has not received a K-1 or presents a K-1 that they believe is in error.

For those partners or members who receive a K-1 that they know is wrong, they must take action. Doing nothing is not an option. Though simply filing a notice of inconsistent treatment (IRS Form 8082) may seem like an easy thing to do, in fact, just the opposite is true. Careful regard must be given to the fact that a dispute has arisen, and where state and federal laws must be considered.

In this course, you will be provided the ability to analyze a K-1, and if it is found to be in error, to then decide on an appropriate course of action.
