S Corporations: Formation and Termination (Portfolio 730)

  • The Portfolio, S Corporations: Formation and Termination, reviews the rules regarding the formation and termination of S corporations.

Description

Bloomberg Tax Portfolio, S Corporations: Formation and Termination, No. 730, reviews the rules regarding the formation and termination of S corporations. It examines the eligibility requirements which need to be met and the mechanics of filing the S corporation election form and shareholder consents, including the procedures for filing late S corporation elections and late shareholder consents. It also discusses the various ways an S corporation election may be terminated — either voluntarily or involuntarily — and the mechanisms for obtaining relief for an inadvertent termination and for obtaining permission to re-elect to be an S corporation within five years of a termination.

The Portfolio provides practitioners with an analysis of the legislative history behind the S corporation Code provisions. The Portfolio also discusses current state and local taxation issues confronting S corporations. For additional discussion of S corporations, see 731 T.M., S Corporations: Operations.
