Roundtable Urges Postponing Certain Reporting Requirements in the New Partnership Tax Return Forms for 2019

November 18, 2019

View Letter

The Real Estate Roundtable on Nov. 18 sent a letter to Treasury and the IRS urging the government to postpone certain reporting requirements in the new partnership tax return forms for 2019. 

The letter encouraged the IRS to seek formal input from stakeholders regarding specific items.  The Roundtable noted in the letter that the reporting requirements as originally proposed were generating significant taxpayer uncertainty; could lead taxpayers to adopt inconsistent approaches to computing information; and may result in more harm than good.

Responding to concerns raised by The Real Estate Roundtable and others, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Dec. 9 issued Notice 2019-66 modifying and postponing several proposed changes to partnership tax reporting requirements.
