Liquidating distributions corporation

— By 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. This will leave the corporation as an existent business entity but with no assets. This plan may be beneficial if the shareholder has enough corporation stock basis so that no gain is recognized on the distribution of the cash and the warehouse, but does not have enough basis to avoid recognition of gain on the distribution of the note.

The shareholder’s basis in the LLC, Inc., stock will be the purchase price of the stock. that it transferred to LLC, Inc., in exchange for the stock, exceeds the purchase price in the sale to shareholder. — As previously described, the contribution of the note will not result in gain being recognized by either LLC2, Inc., or the corporation. LLC3, Inc., will then elect to be treated as an S corporation.

Generally, if the fair market value of the asset exceeds the basis of the asset, the difference is the gain recognized; if the basis exceeds the fair market value, you recognize a loss.

Despite not knowing the fair market value and basis of corporations’ assets, we can describe the general tax consequences to corporation and shareholder when liquidating an S corporation.

Other distributions of property will increase the shareholder’s stock basis by the gain recognized in the distribution and decrease shareholder’s stock basis by the fair market value of the property received in the distribution.

The cash distribution will only decrease the shareholder’s stock basis by the amount of cash distributed.

This information is essential because the tax liability of corporation and shareholder is based on the gain recognized from the liquidating distributions.

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.
