As they gain more experience, staff are expected to take on more complex assignments with minimal supervision. The course is designed to be a step above a mere preparation seminar, including a deeper study into critical areas of formation, special allocations of income and deductions, basis calculations and implications of recourse and nonrecourse debt, basis step-up under 754 on transfer of an ownership interest, distributions, self-employment tax issues, and termination/liquidation of the LLC.
