In 2015, President Obama signed the Bipartisan Budget Act (“BBA”) to extend the national debt limit and spending caps through 2017. The BBA also repealed and replaced the Tax Equality and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982 (“TEFRA”) to substantially change how the IRS makes tax audit adjustments to partnerships and LLCs that are treated like partnerships for tax purposes. Although the proposed regulations to implement the new rules were frozen by President Trump early this year, the IRS recently reissued them and the new regulations will likely be finalized after a public hearing on September 18, 2017.
