Resolved Question:

I have a S-Corporation in California and I want to add my sister as one of the shareholders and give her stock in the company. What will I have to do? Make a note of this in my minutes? What government organizations will I have to notify and forms that I need to fill out? Fees?

You will have to make a note of this in your minutes. Is this a sale of stock from an existing stockholder or issue of new certificates from the corporation?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
My Corporation is a family business. My Dad, Mother, and myself are the stockholders of the company. We just want to give my sister 5% of the shares. What is the easiest way (sale of stock or issue new certificates) with minimal paperwork to issue a few shares to my sister?

Relist: I still need help.
Expert:  RD replied 9 years ago.

If it is a small corporation than I would think that all the shares must have been issued. So you may not be able to issue more share unless you do the paper work in this regard. I would suggest that you all sell part of the shares to to your sister or you all can also gift part of your share to her so that she gets 5% share.

This would a rather simpler way to handle this situation.

Reply to RD's Post: okay, I would like to sell some of my shares to my sister. I will record this in my minutes but what governments forms need to be filled out? Will I have to submit form 2553 again?
Expert:  RD replied 9 years ago.

Once an S election is made, it remains effective as long as she is qualified to be a S Corp stockholder. SO you do not have to submit the Form 2553 again.

You will report her share(change of ownership %) on the tax return that you file. There is no separate paperwork required to be filed to the IRS.
