So when converting a partnership to an llc there is or can be a lot of tax issues to resolve
no gain or loss is recognized, and converting doesn't stop it being taxed as a partnership because the irs doesn't recognize it as any kind of sale or exchange, the partners holding period doesn't end with the conversion but keeps going, if there's a lot of recourse liability then that can be taxed as a distribution to your partner, and before a conversion you get recourse debt but if during the conversion that lessens then after part or all of it can become taxable again. I hope that will help you and make sense if you would like I could recommend places to look to study about it.
