Liquidating an s corp

• Termination of QSUB Election — One thing to be wary of regarding the QSUB election is I. When LLC3, Inc., makes the QSUB election and the corporation liquidates, the corporation will not recognize any gain or loss because LLC3, Inc., will own at least 80 percent of the total voting power of the stock of the corporation and have a value of at least 80 percent of the total value of the stock of corporation. §1362(d), which pertains to the termination of the QSUB election, especially I. This information is essential because the tax liability of corporation and shareholder is based on the gain recognized from the liquidating distributions. §336(a), a distribution in a complete liquidation of a corporation is treated as if the distributed property were sold to the distributee. In a typical transaction, the gain recognized, if any, is the difference between the basis (the cost) and the fair market value of the asset being sold or distributed. §331 applies (pertaining to gain or loss to shareholders in complete liquidation of a corporation), the shareholder receives (in exchange for shareholder’s stock) a note acquired in respect of a sale or exchange by the corporation during the 12-month period beginning on the date a plan of complete liquidation is adopted, and the liquidation is completed during such 12-month period, then the receipt of payments under such note (but not the receipt of such note) by the shareholder must be treated as the receipt of payment for the stock. §453(h)(2), if the shareholder receives an installment obligation in a complete liquidation, then the shareholder’s stock basis must be allocated among all the property received by shareholder in the liquidation. The basis shall be increased by the amount that was treated as a dividend and the amount of gain to the taxpayer that was recognized on such exchange (not including any portion of such gain, which was treated as a dividend). §351 applies, the basis of the property permitted to be received under such section without the recognition of gain or loss shall be the same as that of the property exchanged decreased by the fair market value of any other property (except money) received by the taxpayer, the amount of any money received by the taxpayer, and the amount of loss to the taxpayer that was recognized on such exchange. §1239 — effectively contributing the corporation to LLC, Inc., solely in exchange for LLC, Inc., stock, instead of just distributing the warehouse to shareholder or another LLC, we are able to avoid the adverse tax consequences of I. When the cash is finally distributed to the shareholder, there will be less cash to reduce the shareholder’s stock basis, leaving a larger stock basis to minimize the tax liability, if any, from the liquidating distribution of the other assets. Distribution of Warehouse If the corporation were to distribute the warehouse in a liquidating distribution, any gain recognized would be ordinary gain pursuant to I.

LLC3 will file IRS Form 8832 and elect to be a treated as a C corporation. After LLC3, Inc., becomes an S corporation, it will file IRS Form 8869 (Qualified Subchapter S Subsidiary Election) and elect to treat the corporation as a qualified subchapter S subsidiary (QSUB) of LLC3, Inc., which effectively liquidates corporation in a nonrecognition transaction. LLC3, Inc., should be a C corporation for just long enough to have the corporation contribute its assets into LLC3, Inc. All assets, liabilities, and items of income, deduction, and credit of a QSUB shall be treated as assets, liabilities, and items of income, deduction, and credit of the parent S corporation. §332(a), no gain or loss shall be recognized on the receipt by a corporation of property distributed in complete liquidation of another corporation.
