Customer Question

Can PTI that is reflected on a K1 of the shareholder of an S Corp be counted as a personal asset of that shareholder while at the same time be used in the valuation of the same S Corp if the distribution was plowed back into the company? Other words, can it be used twice?

Hi from just answer. I'mCustomer I'll assist.

I think it can be counted twice, just not directly.

For example, $10,000 of undistributed s income could be an asset. Additionally, your share of the s corp value is an asset. If the s corp is worth $250,000, a 10% interest might be worth $25,000 before discounts. You in effect can count it twice, just not directly.

I hope that clarifies things. If this answers your questions, please rate my assistance with positive feedback. I'mCustomer
