Accountancy Professor Ken Milani’s most recent research and writing have focused on foreign partners and the operating activities of partnerships. Recent articles co-authored by Milani have explored the income tax implications of U.S. real property interests owned by non-resident alien partners, alternative ways of placing property into a partnership, and the advantages of altering a partner’s adjusted basis as an income tax planning tool.

Milani teaches required and elective federal income tax courses in the Accountancy undergraduate and Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) programs. Other teaching responsibilities include classes for the Master of Nonprofit Administration Program. Milani, a graduate of Bradley University (B.S. and M.B.A.) and the University of Iowa (Ph.D.) serves as Technical Coordinator of the Tax Assistance Program—a community service effort that provides free income tax preparation service to Michiana residents. He is also a co-contributor to a weekly South Bend Tribune column, Tax Talk, which appears in the newspaper from mid-January to mid-April.
