Under proposed regulations on which taxpayers may rely upon immediately, elections made by partnerships under IRC §754 will no longer have to be signed by a partnership representative (REG-116256-17; 82 F.R. 47408-47409, October 12, 2017). The current regulations require that the election be signed, which has created issues with electronically filed partnership income tax returns.
In certain situations, a partnership may elect to adjust the basis of partnership property upon the occurrence of certain actions, such as a transfer of a partnership interest (as provided for in IRC §743) or upon distributions of property (as provided for in IRC §734).
