LLCs Taxed as Partnerships Need a
Tax Audit Agreement
that Addresses
the New Tax Audit Rules

Warning – Lack of Tax Audit Agreement Is a Big Mistake:  All partnerships and all LLCs taxed as partnerships must adopt a Tax Audit Agreement now that contains language that addresses the new partnership tax audit rules created by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 and the IRS regulations promulgated there-under that became effective on January 1, 2018. This article explains why the members of an LLC taxed as a partnership could suffer great economic harm if they fail to adopt a Tax Audit Agreement and why only an idiot would agree to be the tax representative without the protection offered by a properly drafted Tax Audit Agreement.

Preventable LLC Disasters

Learn why you need our Operating Agreement. If you are or will be a member of an LLC you must read “Common LLC Disasters a Good Operating Agreement Prevents.” Learn about real life LLC nightmares that you and your loved ones can avoid if your California or Arizona limited liability company Operating Agreement is prepared by the Keyts.

Amend an Operating Agreement

Hire us to amend an existing Operating Agreement to add or remove a member, change membership percentages, restrict transfer of interests, require members approval to take action, convert couples’ ownership to community property with right of survivorship or make any other change agreed to by the members.

Buy Sell Agreement

A Buy Sell Agreement may be a multi-member LLC’s most important document because it contains the members’ exit strategy. A BSA contains buy out provisions that arise if a member dies, files for bankruptcy, is convicted of a felony, ceases to work full time for the LLC, tries to transfer ownership to a third party or any other triggering event the members want. Ask Richard Keyt about a “shot gun” buy out clause.
