Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs)
BPM professionals understand the tax code intricacies relating to your LLP; including partner allocations, capital accounts, basis, at-risk rules, debt allocations, and substantial economic effect. We apply this knowledge to your business to provide comprehensive guidance in the areas of partner compensation, transfers of ownership interests, and redemption of retiring partner interests.

Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
Proper application of the tax code is critical to ensuring that income/deduction and gain/loss allocations are sustainable under audit. BPM’s tax professionals have knowledge and experience in the unique requirements of Internal Revenue Code Section 704(b) involving distributive shares of income, gain, loss, deduction, or credit. We prepare numerous LLC tax returns, including Schedule K-1s, for our clients, many of whom require complex calculations of basis, amounts at risk, passive activity limitations, and debt allocations.
