About the Committee

The Partnerships and LLCs Committee focuses on all developments and issues arising under Subchapter K of the Internal Revenue Code. Primary emphasis of the Partnerships and LLCs Committee is the preparation and presentation of educational programs on timely topics in the areas of partnerships and LLCs at each meeting of the ABA Tax Section. In addition to our Committee's regular three hour continuing education program at each ABA Tax Section meeting, our Committee participates in several other functions at each meeting: an informal dinner get together of members and friends of our Committee and the Real Estate Committee on Thursday evening; a joint luncheon program with the Real Estate and Individual Income Tax Committees on Friday afternoon; and a joint "shop-talking" breakfast with the Real Estate Committee on Saturday morning.

A second and very important emphasis of the Partnerships and LLCs Committee is evaluating and preparing comments on proposed legislation and regulations affecting Subchapter K of the Internal Revenue Code. The Committee has 14 active subcommittees that monitor changes in their respective areas and assist the Committee in the preparation of comments to the IRS and Treasury on proposed legislation and regulations. In addition, in conjunction with each year's May Meeting, the current and past leadership of the Partnerships and LLCs Committee and the Real Estate Committee schedule courtesy meetings with representatives of the IRS, Treasury, and the professional staffs of the Joint Committee on Taxation, House Ways and Means Committee, and the Senate Finance Committee to discuss topics of current interest.

Attention Young Lawyers! The Partnerships & LLCs Committee is actively seeking young attorneys interested in developing careers in this practice area. If you're interested in networking with peers sharing an interest in partnership taxation, please join members of the Partnerships & LLCs and Real Estate Committees for our joint dinner held on Thursday evening at each ABA Tax Section Meeting. Information on the next meeting can be found on the Upcoming Meetings site.

Stay in Touch with Your Committee: Listserv and Hivebrite

Each Tax Section committee has a mailing list (listerv) and a Hivebrite community. Information about and links to both are below. 


Committees share news, events, and updates through a dedicated committee listserv. As a committee member, you are welcome and encouraged to share resources, events, or ask questions to fellow committee members that are directly relevant. The listserv email address can be found below. You are automatically added to the listserv and will receive email notifications when you join a committee.  Learn more about managing your committees.

Click the link above to view the committee listserv email address. Note: you must be logged in and a Section Member to view the address.


In addition to listserv, each committee has a Hivebrite community. Here, committees can share meeting materials or recordings, committee newsletters, and more. All Tax Connect discussion posts have been moved over to the committee's Hivebrite community
