Get-out-of-jail-free card for Partnerships
Notice 2017-71 provides that any act performed for the 2016 taxable year of a partnership, REMIC, or certain other entities will be treated as timely for all purposes under the Code, except with respect to interest, if the act would have been timely if the Surface Transportation Act had not changed the due date for partnership returns.
Notice 2017-71 will be published in IRB 2017-51 on Dec. 18.
Also new for partnerships - Beginning in 2018, most partnerships (including LLCs and other arrangements treated as partnerships for tax purposes) will be subject to a new centralized partnership audit regime.
