Partnership Project

This project was approved by the Executive Committee at its meeting on July 31, 2014. The Uniformity Committee subsequently met to discuss the project and consider the scope as well as the make-up of a working group.
Project Description - Partnership Project

In response to congressional concern that partnership income was escaping effective audit coverage, the IRC's 1982 TEFRA provisions have been completely changed. See H.R. 1314, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, Section 1001, et seq. 

This project is intended to address the following questions:
  • Are new state statutes called for?
  • What more should the states be doing to audit and track partnership income?
  • Are withholding statutes effective enough given multiple tiered entities, and how will old statutes intersect with entity-level liability?
