Business Tax Preparation for Partnerships

Partnership tax returnsRegardless of whether your business is a Sole Proprietorship, Limited Liability Company (LLC), Corporation, or Partnership, the IRS, as well as state and local agencies, require that taxes be paid. It’s inevitable. While each entity has its own tax demands, partnership tax return preparation has significant differences from the others. To ensure that your taxes are being prepared and properly filed, consider engaging the services of a qualified CPA firm, such as Chandler & Knowles, to handle all of your partnership tax preparation and filing.

The Nuances of Filing Taxes for Partnerships

The form of your business determines which tax return forms to use and how to file taxes. For a partnership, unlike corporations, sole proprietorships, or other entities, there is one significant difference. Rather than a partnership filing an income tax return, they must file an Annual Report of Income, in addition to any employment taxes and excise taxes (if applicable). The instruction book for this report covers fifty pages and requires information on such topics as Analysis of Partners’ Capital Accounts, Elections Made by the Partnership and/or each partner, and other details. In addition, the filing date of the 1065 form is the 15th day of the third month following the end of the partnership’s tax year. Now that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the tax code. Understanding the regulations takes time, patience, and a strong fundamental knowledge of the tax code.

Though details of partnership tax requirements are convoluted and confusing (and misinterpreting any of the regulations can result in severe penalties), there is a better way to handle this task. Rather than consuming your valuable time with trying to figure out the complexities of a tax code, turn to the professionals at Chandler & Knowles for expert advice and assistance.
