Best partnership training available - very effective!

I loved the energy the presenters brought to the program. They kept things fun and lighthearted.

The examples are great and the topics are relevant. I like the discussions between the speakers to discuss the issues.

I like their method of presentation, their practical examples, and the great technology of their virtual presentation. Well done!

I attended because of the recommendation of others at my firm who have previously attended. They spoke very highly of Chuck and Michael. They definitely exceeded my expectations!

Our premier seminar, the "Annual Partnership, LLC & S Corporation Tax Planning Forum," or simply the "Forum," is an intensive flow-through entity tax planning seminar, which incorporates recent developments from Congress, Treasury, the IRS, case law and the many issues raised throughout the year by our attendees into the hottest flow-through planning techniques. Created entirely new for the 38th year, the Forum provides attendees with cutting-edge strategies to take advantage of tax planning and business planning opportunities. As the Forum deals with advanced techniques, it is best suited for tax professionals who have a good working knowledge of flow-through taxation.

Read a summary of anticipated topics to be covered at the 2024 Tax Planning Forum.

Program Prerequisites/Level: The Forum is an advanced program designed to (a) provide participants with knowledge of tax planning opportunities using flow-through entities, (b) make participants aware of changes in the law impacting the use of flow-through entities and (c) become more knowledgeable of the tax rules that apply to flow-through entities. To get the most from this program, it is recommended that a participant have at least (i) two years of concentrated experience in flow-through taxation, or (ii) five years of general tax experience with a basic understanding of flow-through principles. Fundamentals of Flow-Through is an intermediate program designed to provide participants with a better understanding of the tax rules relating to the operation and use of flow-through entities and to make participants aware of changes in the law impacting the use of flow-through entities. A participant should have had some limited exposure to flow-through principles. No advance preparation is required for either program.

CPE/CLE Credit: We anticipate that the virtual programs should qualify for up to 20 hours and the in-person programs for up to 16 hours of CPE credit (based on NASBA certification). Each year, Tax Planning Forum LLC seeks to register each of its programs for CLE credit in states where CLE is mandatory, the number of hours of which vary by state. As approval of each program for CLE credit is governed by a variety of governing bodies and state agencies, no assurance can be provided that it will so qualify in your state. If you require CLE credit, we suggest that you contact us about the status of qualification of our programs for CLE credit in your state. (Note that CLE approval is pending in the state of California.)

Tax Planning Forum LLC is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website

For more information regarding administrative policies such as complaint resolution, please contact Customer Service at (800) 286-4760. Customer support is also available at the Tax Forum website.
