INSIGHT ARTICLE |
Limited and general partners may be looking forward to tax cuts outlined in the U.S. tax reforms, but the financial legislation may not be so kind to the private equity industry. Whether it is President Trump’s reforms, changes to partnership audit and fee waiver rules or the fallout from the Grecian Mining court case, general partners and funds face some big changes to the U.S. tax regime in 2018.
RSM’s tax partner Jerry Musi, who specializes in private equity fund tax issues, sat down with Private Funds Management to offer expert insights on how private equity firms should prepare for impending future tax reforms.
Covered in this keynote interview are Musi’s answers to questions ranging from the topic of carried interest, to management fee waivers and the potential for refunds of money previously withheld.
