Stock transfer-I had an Idaho LLC which I own with my wife.

Customer Question

Stock transfer-I had an Idaho LLC which I own with my wife. I worked for a company, which paid me with stock, and they issued the 1099 to my company, and put the stock certificate in my company’s name. I was asked to close the company when my wife and I were getting financing on our new home. I now need to transfer the stock to my name; would I have a tax consequence sine the stock was not sold and no gain or loss was recorded on the sale?

Hi. My name's Lane. I can help you with this one.

...

First, the LLC (with two owners) is treated as a partnership, unless either S-Corp or C-Corp taxation was elected.

...

SO all you really have here is a distribution of property from the partnership.

...

Had this been a single member LLC, (a disregarded entity for tax purposes) this would not be a taxable event ... You would have established basis in the shares as they were taxed to you.

...

Here, it may be a little different, procedurally, but the substance may be the same... Was the income from this passed through to you on the 1065's K-1?

I'm sorry it's a k-1 and it's a S-Corp not a LLC? So, is it a distribution on my K-1? can I gift it to myself?
Expert:  Lane replied 18 days ago.

It's just a distribution on the K-1.(line 19)

...

and only taxable if you don;t have that much basis in the partnership (say you had been taking losses or other distributions)
