The IRS on Thursday announced that S corporations are subject to the new extended three-year holding period applicable to carried interests (Notice 2018-18). It also announced that it will issue regulations soon. Carried interests are ownership interests in a partnership that share in the partnership’s net profits. They are often transferred in connection with the performance of substantial services by an individual.
The IRS’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) confirmed that it has changed the process it uses when informing practitioners that they are under investigation for violations of Circular 230, Regulations Governing Practice Before the Internal Revenue Service (31 C.F.R. Part 10). The new process allows practitioners an opportunity to learn about the allegations against them, even if the OPR eventually takes no action.
Proposed legislation that would give the IRS broad authority to regulate paid tax return preparers is too broad, the AICPA said Tuesday in a letter to the Senate Finance Committee. The letter, from AICPA Tax Executive Committee Chair Troy Lewis to Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., commends the committee for its efforts to fight identity theft and tax fraud but expresses concerns the AICPA has with aspects of the bill.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
