There must be two or more owners in a business partnership seeking to make a profit. Income and losses pass through to partners for federal tax purposes even though the entity itself reports them. Losses, which can be used to offset income on personal income taxes, cannot exceed a partner’s basis and must overcome additional hurdles outlined by the Internal Revenue Code. Partners are jointly and severally liable for each other with regard to the partnership’s business. Also, a partnership can be utilized to take advantage of an exception to the “transfer-for-value-exception,” including within a corporate setting. This means that a non-insured partner or partnership can receive tax-free life insurance proceeds through a policy transfer of the insured partner on the policy. There are a host of other factors regarding an individual’s or company’s
converting to and out of partnership status that must be addressed with precision planning.
