Disregarded Entities: Tax Planning Opportunities and Pitfalls

American Law Institute Video Webcast      

Program Chair and Speaker: Jerald David August

Why You Should Attend

Single-member disregarded entities are widely used for business, tax, and estate planning purposes to permit flow-through treatment of income for tax purposes and limit the personal liability of the single owner or member under state law.  But the treatment of single-member entities may vary depending upon concept, and practitioners need to understand the full implications – and potentially disastrous surprises – of disregarded entities before advising clients on their use.

Join nationally recognized tax lawyer and ALI member Jerald David August as he examines the pros and cons of using disregarded entities for a range of tax planning purposes.  This newly updated video webcast will also analyze the use of a defective entity in business acquisitions, in like-kind exchanges of real property, and in cross-border organizational structures and transactions.
