The IRS has issued new partnership Form 1065, Information on Partners Owning 50% or More of the Partnership. This form hasn’t been required in the past. Since ownership includes attribution from certain family members and trusts, several partners in a family partnership could show ownership interests up to 100%. (The attribution rules are complex and beyond the scope of this alert. Get professional advice.) It will look weird because the percentages might add up to more than 100%.
