KPMG Tax Partner Authors New Book: “Tax Compliance And Reporting For Hedge Funds And Their Investors”

User Contributed News – KPMG Tax partner Joseph Pacello has authored a new book, titled “Tax Compliance and Reporting for Hedge Funds and Their Investors,” that provides a detailed look at tax compliance and reporting issues for professionals responsible for tax compliance and tax laws impacting hedge funds.

“As the hedge fund industry becomes more mainstream and institutional, there has been a significant amount of new legislation and rulemaking designed to address the taxation of funds, as well as their investors,” said Pacello.  “Yet there remain significant areas and issues that can still raise questions for market participants.”

Pacello said he thought the hedge fund community needed new guidance to address many of today’s tax compliance issues, such as FATCA and FIN 48 (ASC 740).

“Tax Compliance and Reporting for Hedge Funds and Their Investors” was published by Thomson Reuters.
