Tax treatment liquidating distribution fpic
based on percentage of ownership and contributions to the corp, loans etc.
I mostly work with S-corp and partnerships - basis calculation for C corp stock is the same?
The stock basis is going to be what shareholders paid for the stock originally it sounds like. Did that dividend reduce that shareholder's stock basis per IRC 301 above?
I think I am making this more complicated than needs be?
Except as provided in subparagraph (B), that portion of the distribution which is not a dividend, to the extent that it exceeds the adjusted basis of the stock, shall be treated as gain from the sale or exchange of property.
We don't want to loose the 1202 stock over this one.
Thank you for all your help and I do like Just Answers and will continue to send questions to you if okay.
A sunset provision reverts back the law to its original language for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2010. Could their distribution be classifyied as a bonus, subject to payroll tax issues? Your perception seems good on this one with respect to the payroll taxes, though that will be based on personal circumstances.
