IRR takes into account contributions and distributions at the time of their recording; regardless of cash flow. Also, it takes into account any accrued income or expenses at the time of recording. When larger expenses are accrued, it can...

Does it makes sense to make the S-Corp election for the LLC so that you can take advantage of the Pass-Through Entity Tax election (so that you can deduct your CA taxes and escape the $10k SALT limit).

Top answer:

To make the PTET election an estimated payment must be made by June 15th of the tax year in question so if that was not done the first available option is for the 2024 tax year. Generally the PTET election is not recommended unless the t...

Using them for newsletters, attending targeted conferences, general networking, and cold calls seem like good places to start, but are there any other ideas/strategies/best practices?  Thank you.

Top answer:

Cold emails don't work and should be avoided. What you should do is to work to develop relationships with connectors that can introduce you to LPs first. You can, also attend events and host events as well to build your top of funnel.
