Ways and Means Proposes Limited "Get Out of S Corp. Free" Card... [ read ]

Do you or your clients have an S corporation that you would like to convert to a limited partnership for tax purposes, but for the taxable gain thereon? Surprisingly, the Ways and Means tax proposals introduced on September 13 would permit a tax-free reorganization from an S corporation to a domestic partnership, with one catch.

Whether to implement a reincorporation of an S corporation, from say California to Texas, or to pave the way for an S corporation asset sale to a buyer taxed as a partnership, an F reorganization can be a tax efficient tool to achieve those objectives, among others.

Have You Checked the Validity of That S Election Recently? (Relief Alternatives Available For No S Election, Invalid Elections or Inadvertent Terminations).... [ read ]

Recurring problems with many S corporations include the untimely discovery of a failure to timely file an S election, filing of an inadvertently invalid election, or inadvertent termination of a previously valid S election. Often times many years will have passed before discovery of an ineffective or inadvertently terminated S election. Absent relief, the termination of an S election can have severe consequences, particularly where the corporation has been making regular distributions. Because this is a pervasive problem under the election requirements of Subchapter S, Congress granted the IRS the power under section 1362(f) to waive invalid or inadvertently terminated S elections provided that certain requirements are satisfied.

For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017 and before January 1, 2026 individuals and trusts are entitled to deduct 20% of their share of qualified business income from partnerships, S corporations and sole proprietorships (loosely referred to for these purposes as "pass-throughs"). . . Ahhh, if only § 199A were so simple. However this seemingly simple deduction is in fact layered with enough limitations, exemptions and phase-ins to make one's head spin.
