Client Testimonials

When my business partner and I found ourselves in a land investment that was abandoned by the developers, we had no reasonable economic choice but to walk away from our mortgage loan.  While we understood that there would likely be tax consequences, the magnitude of our exposure was not fully anticipated.  Thankfully, Mr. Bode was able to work with us to strategize a defensible tax position and mitigate the tax implications of our investment loan abandonment.  I would recommend that anyone facing an investment loss that has tax implications due to debt forgiveness give Gary a call.  It is always best to fully understand the circumstances and the tax rules and related options before paying a hefty bill.  Thanks Gary!

Form 1065 CPA warns of increased Tax Audit Rates for Partnership tax return | Form 1065 tax audit

Form 1065 CPA IRS tax audit of Partnerships

Gary Bode CPA: Partnerships should take any IRS tax audit of Form 1065 seriously. (910) 399-2705

The IRS says it will increase the tax audit rates of Form 1065 for “several” years, starting in 2012. The IRS audited 13,770 Partnerships, out of the 3.4 Million Form 1065(s) filed last year. But the “no change” rate was 46%. So Form 1065 CPAs suspect the IRS might be tuning up its selection process on which Partnerships to audit. For tax audits that did find changes I suspect that dollar amount is about $100,000, through inference to a published S Corporation figure.

What to expect on a Form 1065 IRS audit. Here’s an earlier post on Form 1065 tax audits.

  • Close examination of the Partner’s equity accounts. Who put what into the Partnership and who took what out.
  • Undisclosed Income: nothing special here, this is a given on almost any audit.
  • Employees being paid as subcontractors. Here’s our post on this IRS issue and their remedial VCSP.
  • Verification of deductions.

I’m a Form 1065 CPA with a virtual office to serve your Partnership where ever you are. Distance isn’t factor. Please read a few of the hundreds of posting on this website to help eval my abilities and proactive philosophy. For a free phone consult call (910) 399-2705.
