The ABA Tax Section is sponsoring a teleconference and webcast today on Fundamentals of Partnership Proceedings: Avoiding Common Procedural Pitfalls from 1:30–3:00 p.m. EST:
The past five years has seen a dramatic increase in partnership-level tax litigation. For most tax practitioners, the unified audit and litigation procedures that apply to most partnership proceedings are a minefield of counter-intuitive rules. Even twenty years after enactment, areas of uncertainty continue to exist. This teleconference will discuss the fundamentals of partnership proceedings, with a focus on those issues that can arise leading up to or in litigation. The panel will discuss common pitfalls, and ways to avoid those pitfalls.

- Ronald L. Buch (McKee Nelson, Washington, D.C.)
- William A. Heard (Assistant Branch Chief, Procedure and Administration Division, Office of Chief Counsel, IRS)
