Significant matters addressed in this Supplement

  • New Section explains new California legislation that provides a “workaround” for the Federal limitation on deductibility of State and Local Taxes (“SALT”); the new law allows qualifying LLCs to elect to pay a 9.3% tax to the State with the entity’s electing Members getting the benefit of a tax credit on their State tax return. 
  • Both the Member-Managed and Manager-Managed Operating Agreements (Appendix D3 and D4) have been updated and otherwise revised.
  • A new Appendix C7 is added to provide a comprehensive explanation of meaning and tax effect of “guaranteed payments” which can be easily adapted to be a letter to clients who have difficulty understanding the concept and how it may adversely affect availability of the Section 199A deduction.
  • Section 1.11 concerning the use or non-use of Spousal Consents has been updated and expanded.
