The Tax Section of the Colorado Bar Association
Cordially invites you to a luncheon presentation:
“Who is a 'Limited Partner' and Why Do We Care?”
This presentation will discuss developments in the characterization of a “partner” in a tax partnership as either a general partner or limited partner, and why that characterization is important for purposes of self-employment tax, net investment income (NII) tax, and other federal tax rules. While the definition continues to be uncertain, it's importance has increased with the advent of the NII tax.
