Example Engagement: Partnership State Tax Compliance
CCA was engaged to help a client who was selling a hotel and terminating a partnership. The managing member wanted to make a distribution to the members and needed an estimate of the amount of cash they would need to be retained in order to meet tax obligations. In order to provide guidance to the client, we researched state tax withholding requirements and options. Through our analysis, we estimated both taxable operating income and gain on the sale and both the magnitude and character of the gain.
The partnership had numerous partners and past distributions were not made in accordance with ownership percentage, so a special allocation of income was also required. We prepared a projected income allocation to estimate state withholding requirements for each partner. Our client was able to distribute a portion of the sale proceeds to partners knowing what should be held back for future tax liabilities.
