Comments from the 2020 LLCs, LPs and Partnerships Live Webcast

I think Beth Miller's presentation on the case law update should be longer - lots of good material and deserves more time. Very good set of speakers. Thank you for doing this virtually!

Speakers and topics were all good. Webcast worked well. Thanks for providing a good learning experience.

EXCELLENT CONFERENCE UNDER DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES. APPRECIATE ALL THE EFFORT. SELECTION OF SPEAKERS AND TOPICS WAS VERY RELEVANT AND ALL THE SPEAKERS HANDLED THE CHANGES VERY WELL. THANK YOU

The technical information was very helpful.

Wonderful. First time attending and I found the variety and quality of topics and speakers outstanding. The moderators did an excellent job of introducing the topic and speakers and asking great questions. I really liked their attitudes and humor. FWIW, I appreciated the diversity of speakers in terms of age, gender, geography and race.

Target Allocations for the Rest of Us (Aug 2020)

Target Allocations are widely used to allocate partnership income and loss in a manner that causes the partners’ capital accounts to match, if possible, the amount the partners should receive if the partnership liquidated and distributed its assets to the partners. But there is no IRS guidance as to whether the use of Target Allocations is an acceptable partnership allocation method. Examine in non-technical terms why Target Allocations are used, how they work, and whether they should be an acceptable allocation method.
