  • How §179 limitations affect partnership/LLC basis
  • Regulations for handling basis step-ups under §754 elections, and mandatory adjustments under §743 and §734 for partnerships who have NOT made the §754 election
  • Subsequent contributions of property with §754 adjusted basis to another partnership or corporation
  • Capital account adjustments in connection with admission of new member
  • Special allocations require “substantial economic effect”; what are the requirements?
